Alex Horsley, MA, MBChB, MRCP, PhD. NIHR Clinician Scientist at the University of Manchester and Honorary Consultant at the Manchester Adult CF Centre. Dr Horsley graduated from Cambridge and Edinburgh Universities and finished his respiratory training in Leeds and Edinburgh. He completed a PhD on lung physiology and lung clearance index at Edinburgh University with the CF Gene Therapy Consortium and has published and spoken on this widely. His research focuses on the development of early change in the CF lung, lung physiology technologies and the application of these to clinical practice.

Dr Steve Cunningham is Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh, UK. Steve trained in Respiratory Paediatrics in Edinburgh, Great Ormond Street, London, and Sydney, Australia. He has previously published on models for Retinopathy of Prematurity, but is now more active within the United Kingdom Cystic Fibrosis Gene Therapy Consortium assessing clinical indicators of disease as outcome factors. In addition, Steve has a focus on the role of oxygen as a therapeutic agent in bronchiolitis. Steve is Chair of the Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network (SIGN91) Bronchiolitis Guideline, and also a contributing member to the Pharmacology section of the SIGN/BTS Living Asthma Guideline, and the British Thoracic Society Non-CF Bronchiectasis Guideline.
