About Dr Justin Garner

Dr Garner is a Respiratory Physician here at OneWelbeck Lung Health. He qualified from Imperial College School of Medicine, UK, in 2008. He trained as a respiratory specialist in the North West Thames deanery and completed his PhD in Interventional Bronchoscopy under Professors Pallav Shah and Dr Omar Usmani in 2020. During this time, he evaluated several therapies including endobronchial valves for patients with COPD.

He has worked as a consultant respiratory physician at the Royal Brompton Hospital since October 2021. Dr Justin Garner's research interests include small airways disease, inflammatory biomarkers, and medical device innovation. He has been recognised with the Royal College of Physicians / National Institute Clinical Research Network award for Outstanding Leadership in Research in 2017 (https://www.rbht.nhs.uk/researchers-recognised-outstanding-leadership) and the European Respiratory Society Interventional Pulmonology grant in 2019.

Dr Justin Garner has published multiple articles and book chapters on various respiratory topics including novel treatments for patients with COPD, notably endobronchial valve therapy.
