Repair and regeneration in chronic lung disease and lung cancer

19th Lung Science Conference

11-14 March, 2021 Estoril, Portugal

The ERS Lung Science Conference (LSC) is at the forefront of basic and translational respiratory science and it is an essential event for budding respiratory researchers looking to boost their career. It offers a unique opportunity to network with peers from across the globe and will present cutting-edge abstracts on novel experimental lung research. The following features are organised every year:


Three prizes will be awarded during the conference:

  • The William MacNee Award - Young Investigator Session - recognising young presenters (40 years of age or less at the time of the conference) who submitted an outstanding abstract
  • The Geoffrey Laurent Award - Best Oral presentation

Mentorship programme

Each abstract author who receives a bursary is appointed a mentor. Together, they can discuss both scientific and career questions during a dedicated mentorship lunch on the first day of the conference.
