ERS Lung Science Conferences & more

Inflammation and Respiratory Disease, Taormina 2003

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 able to: 

  • Identify the key factors in the inflammation process in respiratory disease.
  • Recognise the regulation pathways involved in inflammation
  • Identify the injury and repair processes.
  • Network with colleagues in Europe.
