Dr. Niven runs a supra-regional service for severe asthma. He has assessed over 2,000 severe asthma patients, with around 50% of these referrals being for patients on maintenance oral steroids. He is a core member of the UK National Severe Asthma Network, with nearly 1,000 patients entered onto a national database from multiple centres, with Manchester a core contributor.
He has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers and 5 book chapters. Areas of interest have included occupational lung disease, environmental epidemiology and clinical practice in severe asthma. His research has assessed hypertonic saline for bronchiectasis therapy, awareness and diagnosis of dysfunctional breathing patterns, the role of antifungal therapy in severe asthma with fungal sensitisation and trials of bronchial thermoplasty and new biologics.
For attendees that are able to make it in person, refreshments will be served before the seminar, starting from 1:30 PM.
