Dr Neil Greening is an Associate Professor at the University of Leicester and Honorary Consultant Respiratory Physician at Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital. As an active clinical academic, Dr Greening is interested in lung diseases that result in hospital admissions, particularly Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and the effects that hospitalisation has on patients’ physical function, fitness and muscle wasting, as well as the therapies that help this. Clinically, Dr Greening is part of the complex COPD service at Glenfield Hospital.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Greening has been actively involved in the RECOVERY and ISARIC COVID-19 trials. He is investigating the follow-up for COVID-19 patients and the impact of the disease on lung function testing.
