On December 09, 2021, at the University Toulouse III- Paul Sabatier will be held the 1st "La Muco par les Sciences" Conference. Carried by the ABC MucO association, this event is co-organized in partnership with local public and private actors in the field, including the IPBS-Toulouse (Institute of Pharmacology and Structural Biology), the Cystic Fibrosis Resource and Competence Centers (CRCM), the Toulouse Hospitals and the Antabio company. It is supported by the Eurobiomed cluster.
The aim of this conference is to :
- Promote transversality between the different actors by allowing the different teams of the public and private sectors located in the region to meet, get to know each other, and thus develop/strengthen interactions and partnerships;
- Pool skills and catalyze synergies between teams to optimize the development of common projects through the transfer of scientific knowledge.
On this occasion, the different actors of the Occitanie region involved in work related to cystic fibrosis will meet: researchers (CNRS, INSERM), clinicians (CHU of Toulouse and Montpellier), representatives of companies and pharmaceutical industry, patients associations, and students.
Already, 7 speakers, international experts in the field, have agreed to participate in this event. The program is built around 4 sessions covering respiratory and digestive aspects (infection/microbiology, new treatments, nebulization/aerosols and digestive inflammation). Two round tables and a poster session are also planned.
