May 9th 2022 | 19:00-20:00 CET | 18.00-19.00 GMT | 1-2 PM Eastern Time.
At this webinar Dr Richard Allen (Photo), will discuss the genetics of pulmonary fibrosis:
He will introduce genetics and how generic variations can lead to disease, discuss the genetic changes associated with IPF and other forms of pulmonary fibrosis, and explore the implications for new treatments and for familial pulmonary fibrosis patients. Dr Richard Allens talk will draw on his research funded by Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis, UK.
The presentation is aimed mainly at patients & their families, although HCPs may also find it interesting.
As always, there will be opportunities for questions & answers.
The webinar will be moderated by Steve Jones, EU-IPFF President.
The live webinar will be held in English. Recording of the webinar will be released later with subtitles in various languages.
The webinars & the summit will revolve around research, person-centred care, policy and advocacy on pulmonary fibrosis.
