Welcome to MPLC 2015

Oktoberfest-Time in Munich is an exceptional season, a time for get-togethers, pulsating debates and discussions, enjoyment and amusement - attributes that also qualify for inspiring scientific meetings and conferences. Thus, we chose that special period to host the international Munich Pittsburgh Lung Conference (MPLC).

In 2015 the MPLC will be co-hosted with the University of Pittburgh’s Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine, one of the most renowned pulmonary programs in the US.

Precision medicine is an important tool to tackle the requirements of modern respiratory medicine. The development of personalized therapeutic and diagnostic as well as preventive approaches that consider molecular and cellular profiles will allow individualized strategies for cell therapy regimen in the future.

We are pleased to host an exceptional group of world-leading experts on precision medicine, who build the framework of the scientific program of this year’s MPLC – Precision medicine: From molecular mechanisms to targeted therapy. Additionally, we will feature oral presentations and poster sessions of submitted abstracts at the MPLC 2015. We trust that you will enjoy this conference in our wonderful city of Munich!
