Session 2 - World Pneumonia Day - November 12th 2018
From Peter Crooks on November 15th, 2018
This year we are hosting the Edinburgh World Pneumonia Day Symposium to both highlight the ongoing work in Edinburgh that is seeking new ways to combat the disease, and to place these studies in their global context.
• Lidwien Smit (Utrecht University) – Environmental risk factors for pneumonia
• Kenneth Baillie (University of Edinburgh) – Host genetics of susceptibility to pneumonia
• David Dockrell (University of Edinburgh) – Re-engaging host microbicidal responses to prevent pneumonia
• Kev Dhaliwal (University of Edinburgh) – “Better Together” to Understand Pneumonia
