Silvia Colicino presents at the 'Colt Research Day', London
24 January, 2017
Silvia Colicino was one of nine Colt-funded and -supported current students (plus one former student) invited to present their research findings at the annual Colt Research Day, held on 24 January.
Silvia outlined her work comparing different statistical approaches in “Developing a new prediction tool for persistent asthma in young adulthood”. Further details on Silvia’s work on our Ashford Study follow-up – which examines asthma and other allergic disorders, their development during children’s lives and the effect of risk factors on these conditions – can be seen in research projects.
The Colt Foundation considers applications for funding high quality research projects in the field of occupational and environmental health, particularly those aimed at discovering the cause of illnesses arising from conditions at the place of work. The Trustees are especially keen to fund research that is going to make a difference to legislation or working practices. See The Colt Foundation for further information.
The day was held at the historic and intriguing Gordon Museum of Pathology, based at King’s College London, which is the largest medical museum in the UK, and contains some rare and indeed unique anatomical and pathological artefacts.
