Models of Lung Disease 2016

15th Fraunhofer seminar Translational Airway Research


The 15th Fraunhofer seminar Translational Airway Research "Models of Lung Disease" will be held in Hannover on January 21 and 22, 2016. The aim of this workshop series is to discuss the current possibilities of experimental lung research and compare different models and experimental approaches. Each disease area - asthma, COPD, lung infection, and fibrosis - will be addressed in selected presentations covering different phases of translational research: from basic research via pre-clinical models to early-phase clinical studies. In addition, methodological aspects including imaging and biomarker development have also been included. Leading experts in translational lung research from academia and industry will present their thoughts and concepts for translational lung research.

Main topics will be:

  • Models of asthma
  • Models of lung infection and exacerbation
  • Models of pulmonary fibrosis
  • Models of COPD
  • Models of tumor development
