Prof Guy Marks

Chief Researcher

The unit’s program of multi-disciplinary research includes research on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, interventional pulmonology, tuberculosis, sleep disorders, environmental health, occupational lung disease and biostatistics. The research focuses on clinical problems that cause a high burden of disease in the SWS community, require substantial health care resources including in-patient stays and ED visits, and/or are locally-relevant problems in the South West. A diverse range of research methodologies are being employed including randomised controlled trials, cohort studies and cross-sectional studies in the community-based populations and in patient populations, and qualitative research methods.
Members of the unit are investigators or other participants in three NHMRC Centres of Research Excellence (CRE): for severe asthma, tuberculosis and air pollution.
