APF Trustees Attend Professor Jenkins Inaugural Lecture at the Nottingham Mini-Fibrosis Symposium
On Friday 7th July, a number of trustees from Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis attended a wonderful and uplifting event at Nottingham University Hospital.
Professor Gisli Jenkins, one of the charity’s founding trustees, hosted a mini-fibrosis symposium from the Clinical Sciences Building of City Hospital University Campus. The occasion was to mark his inaugural lecture as Professor of Experimental Medicine.
Eight colleagues and leaders in the field of respiratory medicine, each with a special interest in IPF, presented lectures on current ground-breaking areas of research and development regarding aspects of IPF treatment and investigation. They came from such universities as Oxford, London, Newcastle, Nottingham and Colorado, USA.
Professor Jenkins lecture gave a fascinating and moving account of his career from both a professional and personal perspective and provided a valuable insight into the work of an IPF consultant on the front line of research into the causes of IPF.
