Chloe Bloom is a clinical academic working in the field of respiratory epidemiology. She completed her specialist respiratory training in North West London in 2014. During this time she undertook a PhD as a MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow at the MRC-National Institute for Medical Research under Professor Anne O'Garra, where she applied bioinformatics and biostatistics in the evaluation of genomic and clinical data. After receiving her CCT she obtained an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Her research interests centre on the use of large clinical datasets to predominantly study people with asthma, and other respiratory diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and non-tuberculous mycobacteria. She is an Honorary Respiratory Consultant at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Royal Brompton Hospital.
