4th Symposium of NRS platform on animal models in pulmonary research

NRS October 2014

Fourth symposium of the NRS platform on animal models in pulmonary research, October 17th, 2014, Utrecht.

On October 17th, 2014, the NRS platform animal models in pulmonary research organizes the 4th symposium in Utrecht, (David de Wiedgebouw, room M2.01, Universiteitsweg 99, Uithof). 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 4th symposium, experts in the field, and PhD students will give an overview of the animal models used in pulmonary research such as pulmonary infection, asthma, lung emphysema, neonatal lung disease, ventilation induced lung injury etc. Our keynote speakers, prof dr Michael O’Reilly (Rochester, USA) and prof dr Hamida Hammad (Ghent, Belgium), will give overviews on how the oxygen environment at birth influences children’s health and the role of dendritic and epithelial cells in asthma, respectively.
