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.



Molecular and Cellular aspects of Chronic Lung Disease

This workshop brought together experts using different animal models of lung pathology, letting them interact with young researchers in the field. Through a combination of lectures and group discussions on selected topics gave researchers better access to related technology and experience.

The purpose of this exercise was to generate synergy from the combined experience, which should lead towards:

  • Consensus protocols for the study of lung disease in animal models
  • An investigation of common mechanisms in different forms of chronic lung disease
  • Novel and combined approaches in the field of experimental lung disease
