ERS Research Seminar: Post Genome Respiratory Epidemiology II - An interdisciplinary challenge, Cernay 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

In the past decennium there has been considerable progress in research determining the genetics of complex diseases, including asthma and COPD and other complex diseases. A first research seminar on "Post genome respiratory epidemiology" has been held in 2002. The primary aim was to sensitize respiratory epidemiologists to the potentials of genetic and genomic research. Since epidemiologists and clinicians have incorporated genetic aspects in their studies by candidate gene approaches and genome wide search, debated aspects are no longer whether genetics should enter respiratory epidemiology but how.

This second "Post Genome Respiratory Epidemiology" ERS research seminar organised in cooperation with Ga2len aimed to:

  • illustrate current challenges in epidemiology in relation to genetics, genomics and post genomics in asthma and COPD by combining states of the art regarding the field and other views from a broaden perspective
  • favour interdisciplinary approaches for defining strategies, methods, interpretation of results - Assessment of their potentials and limits
