Cross-talk in the lung microenvironment: implications for chronic lung disease

Chairs: S. Bartel (Groningen, Netherlands), R. Gosens (Groningen, Netherlands)
Aims: to summarise the novel findings regarding the cross-talk in the lung microenvironment that were discussed at the ERS Research Seminar (February 2018, Berlin). A mechanistic understanding of the cell-cell and cell-microbe communications in the lung microenvironment will promote the development of novel preventative strategies or therapies for chronic lung disease. Therefore, this symposium will focus on different aspects of the cellular communication mechanisms in the lung that participate in health and disease, including communication via soluble factors and the transfer of extracellular vesicles. The influence of microbial factors on these communication mechanisms will also be discussed.
