This talk by Dr Dexter J Wiseman covers “RSV as a Cause of COPD Exacerbation and Beyond: The Hidden Annual Epidemic“.
Dr Dexter Wiseman Background
Dr Dexter Wiseman has an honorary positions at the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS trust and the National Heart and Lung Institute as clinical research fellows and senior practitioners, respectively.
Dexter is now working at Professor Jadwiga ‘Wisia’ Wedzicha’s lab as part of his research study. In the past, he assisted in managing the London COPD exacerbation cohort. His research interests include the role of viruses in COPD flare-ups. In order to complete his PhD, he examined the part that RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) plays both during flare-ups and times of stability.
In order to better understand the immunological indicators of RSV susceptibility in COPD patients, Dexter collaborates closely with Professor Peter Openshaw and Dr. Ryan Thwaites through the international partnership RESCEU (Respiratory Syncytial virus partnership in Europe).
