Andrew Bush

Professor of Paediatrics and Head of Section, Paediatrics, Imperial College London, UK

Andrew Bush's research interests include the invasive and non-invasive measurement of airway inflammation in children, in particular the use of endobronchial biopsy in the management of severe asthma, and also respiratory mass spectrometry. He has raised more than £70 million in peer review grants and donations with his collaborators. He has supervised 37 MD and PhD degrees, authored more than 450 papers in peer review journals, and written more than 100 chapters in books and monographs. Professor Bush is co-editing the 9th Edition of Kendig's Disorders of the Respiratory Tract in Children, having co-edited the two previous editions. He has been Deputy Editor of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (the highest impact factor respiratory journal, the only Deputy Editor from outside North America), and Head of the Paediatric Assembly of the European Respiratory Society. He was the Joint Editor in Chief of Thorax, then the 2nd ranked chest journal in the world, and top-ranked outside North America, the first paediatrician to hold this post.  Professor Bush has served as Associate Editor for Europe for Paediatric Pulmonology. He is an NIHR Senior Investigator, and currently Chief Investigator in a £4.64 million Wellcome Strategic Award. Most importantly, he has the three greatest grandsons in the world, Dylan and Jack (both in South Africa, where a colleague unkindly but accurately described Professor Bush as Professor of Wine, Cricket and Grandchildren at the University of Cape Town), and Oscar as his Grandsons.
