Dr Romy Sohal

Sukhwinder (Romy) Sohal’s area of specialty is in Respiratory Immunopathology. Romy has accomplished a great deal over his career and has had the opportunity to travel the globe with his work.

His journey to the University of Tasmania happened with an interest in smoking-related lung disease. Prior to this he was conducting research on immunopathology of asthma at Southampton General Hospital (UK). While he was working there, he used to see hospital staff and patients smoking outside the hospital and wondered what it would be doing to their lungs. Romy’s curious mind led him to become a specialist in Respiratory Immunopathology, particularly looking at smoking-related chronic lung disease.
