The Thirteenth Annual Respiratory Disease Young Investigators’ Forum is a unique educational opportunity designed specifically for US-based Fellows (MDs, DOs) actively enrolled in a pulmonary, allergy, or immunology fellowship program during the 2016-2017 academic year who are conducting research on airway diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary vascular disease, lung transplant, allergic rhinitis, genetics of airway diseases, or bronchiectasis, in either pediatric or adult populations. Young investigators who are transitioning to initial faculty positions following the completion of their fellowship training in June 2017 are especially encouraged to participate.

Eligible Fellows are invited to submit an abstract of their research (clinical or basic science) to a panel of 9 expert faculty for assessment. The abstracts are blinded, and each one is scored by the expert faculty. Based on these scores, the top 30 abstracts are accepted (15 clinical research and 15 basic science research). It should be noted that the final selection of abstracts is based on the quality of the research and the number of abstracts received in each category.The top 30 young investigators are invited to attend the Forum as presenting faculty to present their research in full for further review and comments by the expert faculty and peer presenting faculty. Based on the scores of the expert faculty, the top 3 presenters in each category noted above will be provided with a monetary award and a plaque.

During the Forum, additional group discussions with expert faculty will be planned. At the conclusion of the activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify new areas of respiratory research that offer new inroads to effective therapies
  • Identify the key components to be included in respiratory basic science and clinical research
  • Discuss research study designs that may improve on current approaches to respiratory research
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses of the research and receive constructive input on the studies presented
