Home The Society Assemblies and Groups ERS Assembly 4: Sleep disordered breathing
Chair: Manuel Sanchez De La Torre
Secretary: Dimitrios Kantas
This active and growing Group provides a forum where scientists and clinicians interested in how breathing is regulated during wakefulness and sleep can meet and share their ideas.
Major interests include the nature of disordered respiratory control in disease and the causes and consequences of sleep-disordered breathing. There are many points of contact with the other Groups within this Assembly, which have led to a series of successful symposia at successive annual meetings. Raising the awareness of sleep and breathing problems in the EU and encouraging better research funding in this area is a major priority and has been helped by the task force set up by the previous officers of this Group. Active participation is encouraged and new ideas for group activities are always very welcome.
