Extract

It is a privilege to have been asked to summarize my views of the clinical relevance of this conference. It is always a wonderful honor to be asked to participate in the Thomas Petty Aspen Lung Conference, which I attended for the first time in 1968. This is a conference that I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed. I have invariably gone away from it inspired and motivated to look differently at some aspects of lung research and clinical medicine. It is exciting to see so many basic and clinical investigators gathered to discuss COPD and emphysema, particularly now when for the first time in many years there are new therapeutic modalities on the horizon.
