[Perspectives] Alvar Agusti: bringing systems biology to COPD

“Some people think he’s a bit too wild, a bit too radical”, says Jørgen Vestbo. “He’s an unconventional thinker. When most of us start discussing things from a particular starting point he’ll often question the starting point as well.” Peter Sterk takes a similar view. “He thinks out of the box and ahead of the crowd. He’s a clinician who’s open to fundamental innovative developments that will change clinical practice dramatically in 5 or 10 years. He’s one of the frontrunners shaping that future.” Professors Vestbo and Sterk are both respiratory physicians, the former at the UK’s University of Manchester, the latter at the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
