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.



Challenges in respiratory medicine: how can we move from symptomatic management to a cure

This ERS Research Seminar addressed four major themes requiring significant attention in the direction of the the current and next generation of respiratory clinicians and scientists.

  1. Balance: What is the right balance between research, publishing, industry and seeing patients?
  2. Barrier tissues: How important are barrier tissues such as the gut, skin and brain in respiratory diseases?
  3. Aging: When and how should we treat patients? How does age relate to their susceptibility and how can this be addressed?
  4. Disease chronicity: What are the common mechanisms underlying disease chronicity?
What do we need in the clinic and what approach can clinicians take to improve the drug development pipeline?
