New £340,000 investment into asthma and allergy research at University of Leicester
Date:6/26/2012

A charity operating Britain's longest-running pollen database is investing over 340,000 into vital asthma and allergy research at the University of Leicester.

The Midlands Asthma and Allergy Research Association (MAARA), a local charity established in 1968 to undertake and fund research into the causes of asthma and allergy, is funding the study in the University's Department of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation.

Steve Watson, Chairman of MAARA, said: "We recognise the importance of research in this area and have been impressed with the results that Dr Pashley and her team have delivered to date. I believe that the techniques they have developed are ground breaking and the results of the longer term research could make a real difference to the lives of Asthma sufferers."

The funding will directly benefit asthma and hayfever sufferers in the East Midlands, according to Dr Catherine Pashley who runs the aerobiology and clinical mycology group at the University. She said: "I am absolutely delighted to be given this amazing opportunity. This funding means we will be able to continue our research which we hope will enable us to better understand what fungi people are breathing in, and which of these fungi are causing clinical complications. We hope to also begin new strands of research that will help us to better understand the mechanisms behind how the fungi are causing problems."

In 2005, MAARA provided a five year start-up grant to the University of Leicester, under the leadership of Professor Andy Wardlaw, to establish the new Aerobiology and clinical mycology group.

MAARA also fund the University of Leicester aerobiology and clinical mycology group as the only site in the East Midlands recording airborne pollen levels, a summary of which is made freely available on the MAARA website in addition to being used by the Met. office in conjunction with other sites throughout the UK to produce pollen forecasts for
