 Description:  This PhD will explore the role of eosinophilic inflammation in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is now the third leading cause of death and is responsible for significant morbidity among sufferers. There is poor understanding of the inflammatory mechanisms involved in COPD and recent evidence suggests that around 25-30 per cent of sufferers have an eosinophilic inflammation. This project will explore inflammatory subtypes in COPD and explore the role of eosinophils in COPD. There is some scope within the project for the candidate to explore these in an exclusively laboratory focused project or a combination of laboratory and clinical bases analyses and assessments.
