Research Seminars

About

Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.



The many faces of stem cells in respiratory diseases

This seminar addressed the emerging field of stem cell research in respiratory diseases. Its objectives are to gather scientists and clinicians from different subspecialties to foster exchange and increase knowledge about stem cell research in general and in the lung in particular. Recent years has led to a tremendous increase in our understanding of the origin and function of the different stem/progenitor cell subtypes within the lung, and the potential therapeutic use for future cell-based therapies is exceedingly superb.
