Significant challenges exist in severe asthma, such as persistent exacerbations, hospitalizations, and symptoms contributing to poor quality of life.2

Epithelial dysregulation is implicated in both upper and lower airway diseases1,2
Airway hyperresponsiveness results from an intricate interplay of airway inflammation, airway remodeling, and structural changes.1–3
Epithelial cytokines (eg, TSLP) are released in response to triggers, initiating a cascade of immune responses that drive clinical features of asthma.1–4
Overlapping and changing inflammatory pathways in response to an exacerbation, trigger, or treatment change highlight the complexity of severe asthma.1–4
In addition to his clinical practice and teaching, Professor Boulet’s research aims to establish links between basic research and clinical science in the field of asthma and respiratory allergy.
