Check out BBC’s Morning Live, 16 Jan 2024 from around 10 minutes in, to watch a feature on clinical trials filmed here at the NIHR Leicester BRC.

Presenter Sheree Murphy visited our Respiratory theme in November 2023 to film patients taking part in a COPD-HELP trial and to speak to Professor Chris Brightling about the nature of clinical trials in the UK.

They also interviewed patient David Chapman, who took part in a trial which led to the new severe asthma drug, Tezepelumab, which is now being prescribed to patients in clinics.
