ERS Lung Science Conferences & more

Translational research in pulmonary disease: Hypoxia-driven mechanisms, Taormina 2007

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.

Educational aims

Create a topic-oriented dialogue between young post-doctoral scientists and established investigators on the following major topics:

  • Hypoxia-dependent gene regulation
  • Chronic lung vascular remodelling in hypoxia
  • Hypoxia-driven angiogenesis and lung development
  • Hypoxia in alveolar remodelling, fibrosis, and emphysema
  • Hot topic session
  • Excellence Poster - "The best of lung research"
