Mona Bafadhel is Associate Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Oxford and a Consultant Respiratory Physician. Her research focuses on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a set of conditions that cause the airways to become inflamed and make it harder for patients to breathe.

In this talk, Mona will discuss her work on COPD and her recent research on the use of inhaled corticosteroids (usually used for asthma and COPD) to reduce the chances of severe respiratory illness in COVID-19 patients.
