Founding Editor: Dr Richard E Russell
Dr Richard Russell was trained at Guy’s Hospital with further postgraduate training at St Bartholomews and St George’s Hospitals in London. He was trained in respiratory medicine in the Southeast Thames region and at the Royal Brompton Hospital. Dr Russell has been a consultant at Wexham Park and Windsor Hospitals for two years and has special interests in COPD, asthma, and delivery of care. During his time at the Royal Brompton, he completed a PhD as a British Lung Foundation Research Fellow under the supervision of Professor Peter Barnes. The research focused on the basic mechanisms of COPD and disease progression in a population of smokers in primary care, and this is a continuing area of study.
Dr Russell has interests in obstructive lung disease, particularly pathophysiology of COPD and how patients should be cared for across the primary/secondary care interface. He is a member of the British Thoracic Society Executive, Scientific Committee and the Communications Committee, is active in the British Lung Foundation, and was recently involved in drawing up the new asthma guidelines. As editor of the International Journal of COPD, Dr Russell is keen to increase the awareness of COPD and provide a platform for advances in the understanding of COPD pathology, which are so desperately needed.
