Welcome to the home of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) research taking place at the University of Lincoln.

COPD has become a prevalent healthcare issue within Lincolnshire over the past decade. Research is being undertaken worldwide to try and tackle this prominent health issue. From 2015, research will be undertaken at the University of Lincoln to contribute towards the literature to create a better understanding, and management, of COPD. With continued research and additional personnel, we aspire to develop a research unit within Lincolnshire which can hopefully expand into broader fields of COPD research. Current research focus revolves around non-pharmacological treatments within COPD. We are working with local health services to develop research ideas and partnerships to aid a continued output of COPD research from the University of Lincoln for the benefit of Lincolnshire.
