Asthma and Chronic Airways Disease

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Asthma, an intermittent disease, is the commonest lung disease in the UK. The second is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), now the 4th leading cause of death globally. In both a combination of environmental and genetic factors are important, although for COPD smoking is the biggest risk factor. 

This lecture will consider trends and advances in these two diseases, and the chronic genetic lung disease cystic fibrosis.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
