Allergies and lung diseases are a major cause of long-term suffering for people in the UK. We are keen to help alleviate this suffering by providing critical funding to support research into asthma, allergy and inflammatory lung diseases at the University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine and allied activities at the University Hospital Southampton. The Charity supports early stage research projects and pump-priming grants to help leverage substantive grants from major funding bodies. We also support purchase of specialist research equipment and provision of educational opportunities in the form of bursaries and PhD student training to bring on the next generation of researchers in these important fields.
Asthma, Allergies & Inflammation
AAIR has contributed over £6M to assist with developing new drugs, to improve treatment and to further understand the mechanisms that present patients with the effects of asthma, allergies and inflammatory lung diseases.
Almost 70% of the population in the UK give to charity, but only one in three do so tax-efficiently. As a result donors and charities alike are missing out on millions of pounds in very generous tax reliefs.
AAIR researchers have excellent laboratory facilities to study into asthma, allergy and inflammatory diseases. The research is predominantly hosted in the laboratories of the School of Clinical and Experimental Sciences.
