Jennifer Quint is a Professor of Respiratory Epidemiology in the School of Public Health at Imperial College London. She is an Honorary Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine at both the Royal Brompton Hospital and Imperial College London NHS Foundation Trust.

Prof Quint leads the Respiratory Electronic Health Record group, a clinical epidemiology research group whose interests centre on using various sources of de-identified, routinely collected electronic healthcare records to study a number of respiratory diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis and most recently COVID-19. Work centres on maximising the quality, linkage and usage of these data for clinical and research purposes. Research topics include understanding the relationship between cardiovascular and respiratory disease, respiratory disease prevention, diagnosis, natural history and management. Many of the outputs are used for informing policy, and in the planning and allocation of resources. 

She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the Royal College of Physicians. She works closely with NHSE England on data and metrics across a number of respiratory parameters, partners with the Royal College of Physicians where she is the Analysis Lead for the National Respiratory Audit Programme and is co-lead of the HDR UK Inflammation and Immunity Driver Program. She currently serves as joint Editor-in-chief of the journal Thorax.

Prof Quint is a Deputy Director of the Graduate School at Imperial, leads several Research Portfolios on the Global Masters in Public Health and is involved in teaching and supervising projects across MBBS, and Masters programmes.
