Imagine a future where children are stopped from ever developing asthma.

Dr Hans Michael Haitchi, a researcher, academic and game-changer in the world of asthma is on a quest to achieve this.

In collaboration with scientists in the USA, Hans Michael and his team are dedicated to understanding the secrets of the ‘asthma gene’ – ADAM33.

Ultimately, Hans Michael’s goal is to “switch off” the ADAM33 gene, by developing treatments that can prevent or reverse the twitchiness and inflammation of the airways characterised by asthma.

To improve the lives of everyone with asthma, researchers must first uncover the mysteries of the condition. Asthma UK funds researchers like Hans Michael, to give us the best chance of beating asthma. If you’ve been inspired by Hans Michael’s work, support the Asthma Research Uncovered crowdfund today. Combined, the donations of thousands of people like you could help uncover the next big breakthrough in asthma research.
