Breathing Matters is the fund for UCL Respiratory, the centre for respiratory research.

It has been set up to raise awareness, provide patient support and help find a cure for respiratory diseases.  The focus of our research is into pulmonary fibrosis, lung infection and lung cancer, although our research touches on other diseases.

UCL Respiratory is part of the University College London Hospitals / University College London Department of Health’s National Institute of Health Research Biomedical Research Centre. It is one of the world’s leading research centres for respiratory diseases, promoting and conducting medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of respiratory diseases.

Breathing Matters supports UCL Respiratory in their commitment to find better ways to diagnose and treat respiratory diseases, but to also encourage patients, their families and friends to become actively involved as advocates, advisors, fundraisers or even participants.
