Judith García Aymerich: Linking environmental factors and respiratory diseases

"I'd like to answer research questions that come from the population, those who are diseased, and that can go back to the doctors"

As a respiratory epidemiologist of our Respiratory Diseases Programme, Judith García Aymerich is mostly focused on the role of physical activity in the evolution of chronic respiratory diseases and tries to understand the interrelations of different risk factors that are connected to lifestyle.
