Experimental models Symposium
The NRS task force experimental models in pulmonary research organizes a yearly Experimental models Symposium in October. The NRS taskforce was established in 2011. Initially the focus was on animal models and was broadened to all experimental models used in lung research in 2019. Our aim is to optimize the use of experimental models in lung research and to stimulate and facilitate collaborations between research groups of the academia and industry. During this symposium, experts in the field, post-docs and PhD students will give an overview of the experimental models used in pulmonary research studying lung diseases such as pulmonary infection, asthma, lung emphysema, neonatal lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, etc.
We invite all NRS members that are (interested in) working with (animal) models in experimental pulmonary disease or associated research to attend this symposium.
