Miriam Johnson is Professor of Palliative Medicine at Hull York Medical School, Director of the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre and Co-Director of the Supportive Care, Early Diagnosis and Advanced Disease Research Group at the University of Hull. Her clinical and research interests include mechanisms and management of breathlessness and inequalities in palliative care service provision e.g. for people with non-malignant disease such as heart failure and respiratory disease. The projects employ a wide range of research methodologies (clinical trials of drug or complex interventions, qualitative studies, observational, secondary data analysis, data linkage studies) and collaborative partners are involved across different disciplines and countries. She has published widely and projects are funded from a variety of bodies (NIHR, NHMRC, Dunhill Medical Trust, Marie Curie Cancer Care/CRUK, Yorkshire Cancer Research, British Heart Foundation).

She is palliative care specialty joint lead for the Yorkshire and Humber Comprehensive Research Network. She set up one of the UK’s first palliative care services for people with heart failure.
