Thank you!

We extend our thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Lung Science Conference (LSC) – especially those who contributed to the extensive programme. As well as marking the 20th year of this event, this year’s LSC also marked the return of the European Respiratory Society’s in-person events. We were pleased to welcome over 170 delegates onsite, and 158 online – meaning a overall attendance number of 328 – our largest attendance to date.
