Personal details

Please provide your email address so that a member of our research team can contact you to arrange a call about your application. 

We ask this information if you are becoming a Lay Advisory Panel or Research Advisory Panel volunteer so we can arrange a telephone interview.

Information about you

We ask this information to identify your relationship to asthma so that we can understand which opportunities are most relevant to you. We will not use this for any other purposes or share these details with third parties. 

We collect this information because volunteers must be over 18.

Medical Research

Asthma UK funds research to find cures and new treatments for asthma. Under certain circumstances, some of this research cannot be done without involving animals and possibly embryos. As a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities we would only consider funding research involving animals or embryos where there is no alternative and where strict regulatory guidelines have been met. None of the research we currently fund uses embryos. Some of the research we currently fund involves the use of animals, and you can find out more about Asthma UK’s policy on this by visiting our Research Ethics page.
