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.



Novel insights in pulmonary fibrogenesis: from bench to bedside Research Seminar

The aim of this seminar was to offer general discussion on emerging clinical and scientific concepts in pulmonary fibrosis including:

  • advances in autoimmune and idiopathic fibrosis with regard to both pathogenesis and treatment
  • diagnostic and prognostic evaluation, monitoring, and current and novel treatment approaches in idiopathic and autoimmune disease
  • recent important clinical statements and studies
  • laboratory science with s focus on the pathogenesis of fibrosis
