Programme highlight: asthma and COPD
The broad areas of asthma and COPD are constantly evolving, bringing new challenges to professionals working in the field. Key topics covered at this year's Congress will include the under-diagnosis of COPD, the genetic origins of asthma and advances in the phenotyping of airways diseases.
Over 100 sessions covering this field will share the most up-to-date scientific knowledge through a variety of formats including postgraduate courses, symposia and group members' meetings, as well as oral presentations, thematic posters and poster presentations.
Chair of the ERS Airway Diseases Assembly Professor Ian M. Adcock, highlights: "Sessions at this year's congress will offer cutting-edge research and expert knowledge to all professionals working in this rapidly evolving field. More and more pharmacologists, basic and translational scientists have joined our assembly alongside clinicians and we welcome all professionals working in the field of airway diseases. By adopting multiple perspectives and keeping abreast of the latest developments through attending congress sessions, we can help improve the outlook for asthma and COPD patients."
