Jennifer Quint is a Professor of Respiratory Epidemiology jointly appointed across the School of Public Health and the National Heart and Lung Institute 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.

She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, the Royal College of Physicians, and of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics. She works closely with NHSE/I 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 Asthma and COPD Audit Programme and is the Co-Director of the BREATHE HDR UK hub. She currently serves as joint Editor-in-chief of the journal Thorax.

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 the Domain lead for Research Skills, and Module lead for Clinical Research and Innovation for the MBBS curriculum at Imperial. She is also involved in teaching and supervising projects across the Masters programmes in SPH.
