The United Kingdom Bronchiectasis Registry (BRONCH-UK) is a national research database and biobank of adults with bronchiectasis.

The aim is to facilitate clinical trials and academic research studies in order to improve our understanding of what causes bronchiectasis and to find better, more effective treatment for people with this condition.

 The project is an initiative of the Bronchiectasis Research Academic network (BRAN) and funded by the Medical Research Council.

BRAN  is a national network of doctors, allied healthcare professionals  and scientists across the UK with the aims to promote good clinical care and facilitate research and communication among clinicians and researchers in Bronchiectasis.
