Seminar - 26th-27th May 2022

Advancing Research in Interventional Pulmonology is a Research Seminar (RS) will provide the framework to explore recent and possible future advances in the field of Interventional Pulmonology (IP) that can improve health related outcomes.
IP is rapidly growing providing a number of advances in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic pulmonary and thoracic medical procedures for a variety of pulmonary illness. While the future of IP will continue to grow, we believe that a research seminar focused on the recent advances and upcoming technologies, which may influence the field, would provide a great background to fuel valuable research collaborations, novel ideas, increasing the knowledge in IP and raising awareness on the importance of IP. Promises and challenges associated with growing in IP needs to be addressed to help the development of this rising discipline.
This RS will fuel IP research with higher potential to be soon apply in clinical practice and was conceived to strengthen the links between interventional pulmonologists who are active in the field of clinical research and those who want to lay the foundation for future projects and collaborations. An international panel of experts from different areas of expertise will present and discuss the current knowledge, will identify open
issues and future strategies for research focusing on those with higher translation potential towards the clinical setting. Presentations from young researchers will be encouraged and more experienced investigators will support researchers at many levels stimulating networking and new ideas.
