Description

MAARA 50th Anniversary Open Public Lecture

The Future of Airways Disease.

On Wednesday 20 June 2018 at 5.30 pm Professor Ian Pavord, who was a Consultant Physician at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester from 1995-2013 and is now Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Oxford, will review this work before providing a personal view on the future of airways disease.

There have been great changes in the way clinicians view airway diseases over the last 10-15 years and our future approach to classification and management will be very different. Our old fashioned labels will be replaced by a new classification system focusing on traits that can be measured and modified, with resultant patient benefit. Management will move from one size fits all guidelines to a new precision medicine, biomarker directed approach. Original research carried out in Leicester and elsewhere in the East Midlands have been hugely influential in driving this new thinking.

If you would like to attend the lecture and reception at 5.30 pm telephone 0116 247 9888
