Future Events > Biochemical Basis of Respiratory Disease

Biochemical Basis of Respiratory Disease: from Cells to Systems

8-10 January 2018

Nottingham Conference Centre

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

Respiratory diseases are a significant and growing problem and are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Understanding the molecular basis of lung development and function is key to understanding how these processes are altered in lung diseases.


The lung is an exceptionally complex organ and pulmonary biologists are at the cutting edge of applying the latest biochemical and molecular techniques to study it. The aim of the meeting is to provide an overview of the very latest approaches in pulmonary biology, from the individual cells, through systematic analysis of whole organisms, to the latest in population driven pulmonary biology. It will include input from clinical and basic respiratory scientists as well as those from industry The target audience be scientists from both basic science and translational medicine from this wide range of disciplines.



Abstract deadline: 24 November 2017
