ERS Lung Science Conferences & more

Mechanistic overlap between chronic lung injury and cancer, Estoril 2017

The Lung Science Conference is at the forefront of basic and translational respiratory science and it is an essential event for budding respiratory researchers looking to boost their career.

A collection of mini-review articles based on presentations from the 15th European Respiratory Society Lung Science Conference can be read here.

Educational aims
  • To present the very best of international lung science research
  • To highlight new discoveries likely to impact on the future of respiratory medicine
  • To encourage debate and interaction between young postdoctoral scientists and established investigators
