Professor Joy Conway

301g Mary Seacole Building


Professor Joy Conway is the Professor of Respiratory Sciences, Centre for Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Brunel University London.  Joy has extensive experience as a researcher and educator with over 25 years in UK Higher Education Institutions.  

Joy has a strong interest in lung disease, the care of those with lung disease, respiratory physiology and pathophysiology and lung imaging.  Following qualification as a chartered physiotherapist and a Masters in Rehabilitation (University of Southampton) her PhD (University of Southampton) investigated the use of three-dimensional lung imaging techniques to quantify inhaled aerosol deposition in the lung and structural and functional changes that occur with disease.  Joy then progressed through to a personal Chair at the University of Southampton in 2009.  In 2019 Joy was appointed as Professor of Respiratory Sciences at Brunel University London.  

Joy is also the national research lead for advancing practice for Health Education England and maintains visiting Professor status with the NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre for Respiratory and Critical Care
