Being a practising GP is utterly critical to this project.” Says Dr Luke Daines. Most people with asthma are diagnosed by GPs and nurses working in general practice. As a practising GP, Luke’s dedicated to improving asthma diagnosis for both patients and colleagues. He believes the best solution is to enhance the current systems being used. Luke aims to develop software that will identify the factors in a patient’s record that indicate the likelihood of having asthma. Using data will help to make a diagnosis quicker and more accurate, so patients get personalised results sooner.

Data is everywhere. And that’s a good a thing. Because the things data can do are amazing. Dr Luke Daines knows this and he wants to use data to change how asthma is diagnosed. Luke’s research is only possible because of donations from people like you. If you believe in researchers like Luke, show your support today.
