Course content

The division focuses on basic mechanisms that underlie the genesis, propagation and sequelae of airways inflammation, an understanding of the mechanisms of anti-inflammatory drug action and management of the very ill patient at the bedside. The critical mass in the division creates a synergy not otherwise possible and offers opportunities for interactions while still preserving scientific independence.
