The ERS Lung Science Conference (LSC) is a showcase for cutting-edge research and its translation into clinical solutions. Its originality and success are based on facilitating dialogue between young scientists and established investigators.

The programme consists of presentations delivered by experts, young investigators oral presentations and poster sessions based on abstract submissions. After each presentation, time is allocated for questions and discussion. Specifically, LSC 2021 is intended to present the latest advances in basic and translational research in the field of repair and regeneration in chronic lung disease.

Special features for early-career delegates will be organised, including a session on ‘Research output for career advancement: When, where and how?’ and the annual mentorship programme.
