Dr Robin Rudd, Prof Sanjay Popat & Prof Sir Anthony Newman Taylor nominated Asthma Lung UK, read our statement below

We were extremely fortunate to have Dr Robin Rudd, Professor Sanjay Popat and Professor Sir Anthony Newman Taylor participate and advise in negotiations with Cape/Altrad. Their unanimous advice was to recommend that a £10 million lump sum payment should be managed by Asthma Lung UK, due to its longstanding experience and the governance required when funding medical research.
