Respiratory Genetics 2014


This September, the University of Nottingham are hosting a brand new Respiratory Genetics conference with support from the British Association for Lung Research (BALR).

This is an opportunity for the international respiratory genetics community to explore the genetic basis of a range of respiratory diseases including Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). However, any aspect of Respiratory Genetics will be welcome.

In addition to presentations from leading and upcoming researchers in the field, ample time has been allocated to allow discussion, networking and socialising opportunities.
