As part of our ongoing seminar series, the Centre of Research Excellence in Severe Asthma is pleased to host Professor Charles Irvin (Vermont Lung Center & University of Vermont), for a webinar on Physiological Phenotyping of Airways Responsiveness in Asthma – Implications for Personalised Medicine. This presentation will be a public lecture and also available live and online.
The seminar will take place on Thursday, 04 May 2017 @ 1 PM at the Hunter Medical Research Institute, Newcastle (Caves Theatre).

Prof. Irvin’s scientific career has focused on understanding the mechanisms of airways dysfunction of the patient with asthma. Using a multidisciplinary approach including: cell and molecular biology, animal models and systems, transgenic models, physiology, imaging and clinical trial studies, he and his colleagues are attempting to understand the pathophysiological basis of asthma in order to both better diagnose and treat asthma patients.
He has trained 20+ postdoctoral fellows and mentored numerous junior faculty, the vast majority now successfully engaged in research careers.
Prof. Irvin’s travel and the refreshments for this seminar are being supported by funding from AstraZeneca.
For attendees that are able to make it in person, refreshments will be served before the seminar, starting from 12:30 PM.
Prof. Niven’s presentation will be available as an online live webinar, and after the event will be available in the past webinars section of this website.
