Pathogens, Environment and Host: an integrated approach to respiratory health
21 November 2023 · 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
3rd RESPIRE Hospital-University Federation Day
Infectious and inflammatory respiratory diseases are particularly prevalent in the Hauts-de-France and Normandy regions. The genesis and evolution of these often chronic pathologies depend on interactions between the host and its environment (microbiological, toxic, chemical). This environment is changing rapidly under the impact of human activity, with pollution, particularly atmospheric pollution, the emergence or re-emergence of respiratory pathogens, and increasing populations of immunocompromised people.
The aim of the FHU RESPIRE is to improve respiratory health through an integrated approach that takes into account host characteristics from childhood onwards (immune response to aggression, microbiome, respiratory comorbidities), the environment, pathogens and their interactions at the pulmonary level.
The aim of this 3rd scientific day is to encourage exchanges between researchers and clinicians, so that the federation dedicated to respiratory health can fully play its role in our region, and participate in the development of new collaborative and innovative projects that will improve practices and the quality of patient care !
