ERS Lung Science Conferences & more

Immune system dysregulation in chronic lung disease, Estoril 2011

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

  • 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
