Asthma Prevention Consortium ready to start

The Asthma Prevention Consortium, ‘A World without Asthma’, led by dr. Hermelijn Smits (Leiden University Medical Center), has acquired formal status as of today. All the institutes involved have signed the Consortium Agreement. Highly respected researchers from leading institutes in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Australia will collaborate intensively in this Consortium. By sharing knowledge and making use of each other’s strengths and capabilities in five innovative, and sometimes pioneering, research work packages, scientists believe that they will succeed in generating solutions for preventing asthma in young children within 7 years. Lung Foundation Netherlands manages and facilitates the consortium in its role as programme manager and co-financer.
