Focus & Talks
The meeting is designed to highlight and provide an overview of areas of importance in asthma and airways research and to develop new and strengthen ongoing collaborations in an informal setting.
Talks will largely be presented by post-doctoral fellows and senior PhD scholars to highlight the research that is being conducted at the coal-face.
Talks will be grouped into topics, which will be introduced by more senior researchers.
Talks are designed for speakers to discuss the kind of work they do, so that the potential for collaboration is highlighted and time will be allowed (5 minutes) for questions/discussion.
Participants are encouraged to interact with any potential collaborator(s) both basic scientists and clinicians whenever possible.
