Working Groups

Real-life research has utility across a number of core areas of respiratory research.

In order to identify core unmet research needs, REG supports a number of Working Groups, each of which will identify opportunities to address important research needs through non-RCT studies.

Visit the pages for each Working Group to find out more about who is involved and read about their activities.
