It would be exciting to have presented all together in a session with top quality speakers form Europe and beyond. The following projects will be discussed: 1. Diagnosis and treatment of hypersensitivity pneumonitis remain a real challenge; this talk-TF provides an overview of our current understanding and points out new opportunities for further research. 2. Genetics in ILDs: There is a growing body of evidence that both common and rare genetic variants contribute to the development and clinical manifestation of many of the ILDs. Here, we review the current understanding of genetic risk and ILD. 3.
