The Leicester Institute for Lung Health (ILH), established in 2000, acts as an umbrella for senior academics, clinicians and para-clinical staff specialising in respiratory research and clinical development in Leicester.
Members of the ILH have attracted over £60 million in research funding since 2006 and have published over 200 papers affiliated to the ILH including six papers in the New England Journal of Medicine since 2002.
A key role for the ILH has been to foster connections between researchers employed by the University and the NHS, leading to Leicester being awarded the Respiratory Biomedical Research Centre in 2011.
