Every year, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) organises the Lung Science Conference (LSC), in Estoril, to discuss basic and translational science. The topic of the 20th LSC was “Mucosal immunology of the lung: balancing protective immunity and chronic inflammation”. This was the first time that the LSC was organised as a hybrid congress with both in person and online attendance. In addition to an outstanding scientific programme, the LSC provides excellent opportunities for career development and inclusion of early career members (ECMs). All scientific and poster sessions are chaired by an ECM who is paired with a senior faculty to allow ECMs to become acquainted with session chairing, and there is a session organised by the Early Career Member Committee (ECMC) dedicated to career development. Moreover, travel bursaries are made available to abstract authors, and all bursary recipients and first-time attendees are invited to take part in a mentorship lunch. In this article, we provide the names of the ECM awardees and describe the scientific highlights of the LSC 2022 for those who could not attend.
