Titel: "Identifying new drug targets for asthma: insights from genetic, functional and clinical studies"

Föreläsare: Professor Manuel Ferreira


To date, genome-wide association studies have identified ~40 genetic risk variants for asthma and related allergic conditions. An important challenge we face is how to identify the genes that underlie these associations and, amongst these, how to determine if disruption of gene expression might provide a promising therapeutic approach for asthma. In this talk, I will outline how we address these challenges by integrating results from genetic, functional and clinical studies.
