Summary

 

Summary

Chloe Bloom is a NIHR Clinician Scientist at the National Heart and Lung Institute, working in the field of respiratory epidemiology, and a Honorary Respiratory Consultant at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. She read Medicine at the University of Manchester and graduated with Honours in Research and a BSc in Biological Sciences from Imperial College London.

She undertook specialist respiratory training in North West London and during this period she was awarded a MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow for her doctoral studies. She carried out her PhD at the MRC-National Institute for Medical Research under Professor Anne O'Garra FRS where she applied bioinformatics and biostatistics to evaluate genomic and clinical data from respiratory patients. After receiving her CCT she obtained an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Chloe joined Imperial College London in 2017 on a NHLI fellowship as a clinical postdoctoral epidemiologist. Her research interests are centered on the use of large clinical data to improve the management of respiratory disease, with a focus on adult and paediatric asthma, as well as other respiratory diseases including COVID-19 and COPD. 

Chloe was awarded a prestigious NIHR Advanced Fellowship in 2021 to lead a programme of research in asthma, involving the application of quantitative and qualitative analysis, and a data-driven pragmatic trial.
