Publications

The TAHS studies asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other allergies. Our research looks into the natural history, lifestyle, environmental and genetic risk factors of these diseases and conditions. Our goal is to identify the causes and how best to prevent these interrelated diseases, which are major public health issues. 

You can learn more about the TAHS research by reading information about our research themes and published papers below. If you would like to read one of our published papers but do not have access, please fill out an inquiry form and include the paper title in the subject line; we will provide you with a pdf version. Alternatively, you can call us on 1800 110 711.
