Professor Judy Bradley

Areas of Interest

Respiratory diseases with special interest in cystic fibrosis; bronchiectasis outcome measurement; exercise training; inspiratory muscle training.

Prof Bradley obtained her PhD in the area of cystic fibrosis in 1999 at the University of Ulster. She was appointed to a Lecturer Practitioner Joint Appointment at the University of Ulster/Belfast Health and Social Care Trust in September 1998. She was presented with the Award of Distinguished Research Fellowship by the University in 2004 in recognition of her contribution to research in the area of respiratory physiotherapy. She was subsequently promoted to a Reader Joint Appointment at the University of Ulster/Belfast Health and Social Care Trust in 2005.

Prof Bradley was part of a team which put forward an application to the Northern Ireland Research and Development Office to form a respiratory network. In 2007 Dr Bradley accepted the role of co-lead of the Northern Ireland Clinical Research Network (Respiratory Health). In this role she has been co-leads a very successful respiratory clinical trial research portfolio which includes a large number of clinical trials in cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and COPD and has a team of dedicated research staff.

For further information on Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease visit the Understanding COPD Website.

Prof Bradley has published widely in her areas of expertise and has over 50 publications to date. She has obtained funding from a variety of prestigious external agencies/pharmaceutical companies to undertake research has a impact of patient care and service delivery. Her research expertise includes outcome measurement, airway clearance and rehabilitation for patients with respiratory conditions and she currently leads a range of projects in these areas. She has strong external University and Industry collaborations with both local and internationally.
