We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Breath Summit, which will take place from 08 to 11 September, 2019 in Leicestershire in the United Kingdom.

The field of breath research continues to develop rapidly with new research teams, projects, methodologies, technologies and ideas contributing to an exciting, ambitious and challenging research vision; non-invasive personal monitoring of health and disease. 

The trans-disciplinary nature of work is built on rich multi-disciplinary collaborations, and the partnerships fostered through IABR Summit meetings have enabled and accelerated the development of the ideas, individuals and organisations involved in our endeavour.  Therefore, the theme of this 2019 Breath Summit is Together Everyone Achieves (TEAM). We intend to support, foster and strengthen the teams of clinicians, physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, product developers and pharmacists who are striving to develop new concepts, technologies, sensors and algorithms.

Holywell is situated as part of Loughborough University in the heart of the Leicestershire. In the heart of an ancient and beautiful landscape your hosts are renowned for building effective, competitive and world beating teams. For three days in September 2019 we will team up to create an IABR bubble with maximum interaction to:  

  • concentrate our minds, talent and partnerships wonderfully on the multi-disciplinary science of breath analysis
  • and, celebrate our collective achievements, honour those who have positioned our science strongly, and look to the future with keen minds and ambition in our hearts.

Our focus will be all about people and ideas in comfortable well-resourced surroundings.

And should you wish to explore we will guide you to the very best hostelries, restaurants, woodland walks, sports and spas you could possible wish for.
