VIII Scandinavian COPD Research Symposium

We have the pleasure to invite you to the VIII Scandinavian COPD Research Symposium, held at the Scandic Holmenkollen Park Hotel in Oslo on 16th - 17th November 2018.

The symposium is organized by a steering committee with dr. med, Are Martin Holm (Chair) at Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet, dr. med. Anne Lindberg University of Umeå / Sunderby sjukhus in Sweden, dr. med. Ole Hilberg, Velje Hospital in Denmark and dr. med. Terttu Harju, the University of Oulu and Oulu University Hospital in Finland.

The purpose of the symposium is to present current Nordic research within the COPD area, as well as facilitating that clinicians and researchers from the Nordic countries to meet and exchange experiences, thereby contributing to greater insight into this challenging area of pulmonary medicine. The meeting consists of two sessions: "Inflammation in COPD" and "Comorbidities and other diseases" and involves partly State-of-the-art lectures and partly oral presentations by young researchers from the participating countries.

New in the VIII Holmenkollen Symposium this year, is a session with "Interactive Patient Cases." These are led by State-of-the-art speakers and aim to foster a lively discussion.

The invitation to the COPD Symposium is personal and limited. The principle of "first come first serve" will apply. The purpose is to collect an optimum group of COPD interested physicians and scientists to make discussions between participants more fruitful. Particularly, with regard to our mix of experienced pulmonologists and young speakers has been one of the hallmarks of the Holmenkollen symposium. See program on the website and/ or download for more details.
