Research

Pofessor Crane is the Director of Research at the Wellington Asthma Research Group (WARG)

The Group's research programme covers clinical, biomedical and public health aspects of allergy, asthma and respiratory research, including studies to understand the causes and investigate novel treatments. Funding for the research comes from a wide variety of sources but our core funding is provided by the Health Research Council of New Zealand.

Professor Crane also has an interest in smoking cessation.
