Innovate UK and Asthma UK are joining forces to improve diagnosis and support better, more personalised asthma treatments.

Asthma patients across the UK are set to benefit from the jointly funded projects based in Manchester, Edinburgh and Portsmouth.

Over three years they will bring together expert collaborations between academic researchers and innovative businesses, with each project receiving new investment worth over £200,000.

Dr Kath Mackay, interim director at Ageing Society, Health & Nutrition at Innovate UK, said: “By choosing to work in partnership with leading charities, such as Asthma UK we can connect businesses to the resources that the charities may have. This can be access to patients, new ideas and the ability to generate real world evidence.”
