ERS Research Seminar: Host-pathogen interactions in the lung: implications for treatment of respiratory infections and inflammatory lung diseases, Davos 2008

About
Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.

Background
The aims of this research seminar were to bring together a group of established and young scientists from different areas of research (basic and clinical; pulmonology, microbiology, cystic fibrosis (CF), cell biology, immunology, infectious disease, etc.) related to the study of respiratory infections and their role in inflammatory lung diseases and CF. The aim was to cover a wide range of areas, including new developments in the characterisation of respiratory pathogens, host defence, COPD, CF, and asthma research and drug development. A special focus was on translational approaches to encourage interactions of basic and clinical disciplines.
