Ongoing Clinical Research Collaborations

Clinical Research Collaborations (CRCs) are ERS supported projects. They bring together multiple stakeholders, such as clinical and translational researchers, radiologists, biostatisticians, associated funding partners, and patients to collaborate on an identified area within respiratory medicine. This multidisciplinary approach fosters a dynamic scientific community. CRC’s aim to advance science and clinical research and improve respiratory health and medicine.
