Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 4th World Bronchiectasis & NTM Conference virtual edition that will be held from 16 to 19 December 2020.

In a year characterized by the COVID – 19 Pandemic with most of the healthcare resources and energies concentrated in fighting the infection, the World Bronchiectasis Conference remains the place where the latest outcomes on the diagnosis and management of Bronchiectasis are shared and discussed for the benefit and care of chronic and fragile patients.

Furthermore, following the increase of NTM pulmonary and extra – pulmonary morbidity and mortality, it has been decided to fully integrate NTM related topics within the conference programme transforming the WBN – Word Bronchiectasis Conference in WBNC – World Bronchiectasis & NTM Conference.

Considering the complex clinical picture of most of the patients affected by Bronchiectasis and NTM, large space will be given in this edition to co-morbidities. A central role would be also dedicated to the latest outcome on microbiome in pulmonary diseases as well as in the latest outcomes in clinical trials, and new available diagnostic procedures and treatments. The conference will also be the place to discuss the International Guidelines on NTM and Bronchiectasis.

Several lectures would be reserved to latest and most interesting researches from all over the World presented directly by participants, while poster sessions will help sharing effective clinical practices among attendees.

Joining forces, exchanging clinical experiences, sharing data and instruments, creating a network of active experts in the field are the main goals of the conference.

We look forward to having you all connected,

Yours Sincerely,

Antoni Torres
