ARTP Annual Conference 2015

  ARTP Conference 2015

Key Speakers already confirmed can be found via this link.

Our programme for 2015 is truly outstanding and there is not enough space available to detail all the sessions.  Set out below are just some of the highlights:

P.K. Morgan Memorial Lecture: Allergy, Atopy and Inflammation from Professor Chris Corrigan

Heart and Lungs Postcard

Chris Corrigan is Professor of Asthma, Allergy & Respiratory Science at King’s College London School of Medicine, the MRC Centre for Allergic Mechanisms of Asthma and Guy’s Hospital, London.  His presentation will discuss the current race to identify “endotypes” of asthma: subdivisions of disease with common mechanisms, and “biomarkers” of which asthmatics will respond to which treatment. While the conquering of disease is never easy, and there may well be multiple “endotypes” of asthma, the problem may have its roots in our lack of understanding of precisely how inflammation might cause bronchial hyperresponsiveness.

Keynote Lecture: How far has CPAP therapy developed since its inception and what does the future hold? from Professor Ramon Farre (Barcelona)

Professor Ramon Farré is Professor of Physiology (Unit of Biophysics and Bioengineering, School of Medicine, University of Barcelona). His research is focused on lung physiology bioengineering, specifically on respiratory mechanics in mechanical ventilation and sleep disorders, and on lung tissue and organ bioengineering.
