X Anniversary Ukrainian - Polish - Belorussian Conference
“Physiology and Pathology of Respiration:
Advances in basic research and clinical applications”

Kiev, 10-13 October, 2013


FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

    With great pleasure we invite researchers and physicians to participate in the X Anniversary Ukrainian-Polish-Belorussian Conference “Physiology and Pathology of Respiration”. The main idea of this forum is to give our colleagues from different countries a platform for the introduction of advanced achievements in basic research of lung functions from molecular to systemic level directly into clinical practice.
The conference schedule will include the following events: keynote lectures; oral and poster presentations, section of young scientists, exhibition of new equipment, round table discussion, and business meeting. We will also have enough time for personal communications, while enjoying lovely trips with fantastic views.

The main topics which will be discussed during this meeting are:
A. Physiology and Pathophysiology of Respiration
1.    Systemic aspects
2.    Neural and Humoral Control  
3.    Hypoxia and Metabolism: novel signaling pathways
4.    Mitochondrial dynamics and dysfunctions
5.    Reactive Oxygen Species and lung pathology
6.    Epigenetic mechanisms of human physiology and diseases
7.    Pathophysiology and Genetics of Asthma and COPD
8.    Genome and Lung diseases  
9.    Experimental Medicine: models of lung diseases
10.    Immunology and allergology
11.    Pulmonary hypertension

B. Clinical Aspects of Lung Diseases
1.    Airway obstruction, definition, diagnosis and therapy
2.    Age-related aspects of Lung Diseases and Asthma
3.    Lung Tuberculosis: epidemiology, diagnosis & modern therapy
4.    Lung tumor
5.    Lung diseases and today’s pharmacology
6.    Lung diseases and the environment
7.    Modern diagnostic methods in respiratory medicine & Future therapies
8.    Unconventional methods of therapy and improvement of respiratory system

We believe that the meeting will provide a unique arena for discussing these issues and help to better understand -  where we are and where to go?
