Emerging Treatments for Lung Diseases:
Progress, Challenges and Opportunities from an Irish Perspective

Workshop organised by the RIA Committee for Life Sciences

registration fee: €20, concession/student rate: €10

This one day workshop which is being organised by the Academy Committee for Life Sciences is aimed at highlighting:

  • Current challenges with lung disease treatments,
  • Clinical and scientific progress with new treatment strategies,
  • Enterprise opportunities between clinicians, scientists, industry and agencies on the island of Ireland with an interest in translational research in the area of respiratory disease, with a focus on medical devices, therapeutics and diagnostics.

A series of presentations by clinicians, researchers and companies will be followed by a session to discuss the establishment of a network of interested parties. The network will aim to identify research capacities, needs and opportunities with a view to developing a strategic response to the challenges in lung disease treatment. The network will use the NUIM/DCU/RCSI Translational Research Hub (TRH) as a framework but will be all-inclusive. Click here for programme
