Personal profile

Research Focus

Dr Busby was recently appointed as a Lecturer in Medical Statistics. Although his research interests are varied, he is primarily interested in severe asthma outcomes. He is the lead statistician for the UK Severe Asthma Registry and has recently been involved in efforts to combine data from across Europe (DOI:10.1183/13993003.01163-2019) and Worldwide (DOI: 10.1016/j.chest.2019.10.053) to enable real-word research studies in severe asthma at truly international scale. His future research plans include exploring socioeconomic and ethnic inequalities in asthma within the UK, and building on his novel work in remote monitoring of asthma medication adherence (DOI:10.1164/rccm.201806-1182OC). He is a member of the MRC-funded Refractory Asthma Stratification Programme, which aims to use biomarkers to optimise corticosteroid treatment in severe asthma and will begin to publish results during 2020.
