ERS Lung Science Conferences & more

Evidence-based medicine for respiratory disease with special emphasis on inflammatory processes, Taormina 2005

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

After having attended this event, we expect the participants to be have acquired state-of-the-art knowledge about the following aspects of inflammation:

  • Interventions in lung inflammatory diseases
  • Targeting gene expression
  • Gene therapy
  • Biological molecules 
  • Targeting resolution and repair in lung inflammation
