Special features of the ERS Lung Science Conferences

The ERS Lung Science Conference 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:

LSC Awards

3 competitions will be organised throughout the Conference:

  • The Young Investigator Session Award: for young presenters (40 years old or less at the time of the Conference) who submitted an outstanding abstract
  • The Best Oral Presentation Award
  • Distinguished Poster Awards

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.

Early Career session

A special session for the LSC Early Career delegates is organised every year, for the Saturday afternoon of the Conference.

LSC abstracts submission

Abstracts submission for the Lung Science is closed. Notification on selection will be sent to authors by the end of December.
