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.



Physical activity, nutritional status and systemic inflammation in COPD

The aim of this seminar was to bring together international experts in COPD to discuss several important aspects of physical activity, nutritional status and inflammation including pathology and pathophysiology, measurement, clinical and therapeutic implications.
