Developments in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and challenges for future research
Physiology 2011

Human & Exercise Physiology Human & Exercise Physiology

Organised by Mary Morrell, Imperial College London, UK
and Ken O'Halloran, University College Dublin, RoI

Thursday 14 July 2011
LT6 (Experimental Psychology B)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world, and a growing health problem in the UK. This symposium will integrate molecular and cellular effects of hypoxia, with experimental studies and clinical trials, to showcase recent developments in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease research; challenges for future translational physiology research will also be addressed.
