Program at a glance:
Morning: Thematic session with 4 keynote speakers on: “Lung diseases across ages”
Afternoon: Parellel masterclass "Meet the Expert" and workshop "GCP and GLP". The masterclass "Meet the Expert" is for junior researchers (e.g. PhD students) and will allow them present their own research (E-poster, click here for template) and receive feedback from the expert. The workshop " GCP and GLP " is aimed at more experienced researchers (e.g. post-docs); during the workshop participants can update themselves on the new regulations in GLP and GCP and learn how this relates to their own research. Make sure to register before October 4th for this workshop. Followed by the masterclasses and the workshop, a pro-con discussion on the root of chronic lung diseases will be organized.
