This ERS Research Seminar will address 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?
