The ATS is a large professional society focused on pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine (www.thoracic.org). The ATS has two mottos “We help the world breathe” and “Where today’s science meets tomorrow’s care”. The 2016 meeting was a major success based on the number of participants, the quality of the science and clinical updates and the enthusiasm of all involved. The ATS 2016 meeting provided different things for various participants. The Clinical Year in Review and the Clinical Problems Assembly provided exciting content for practicing clinicians. The Keynote lecture series, summarized in this issue of JTD, covered a wide range of basic and clinical topics in respiratory medicine. The social gatherings provided a good venue for junior people to network and get involved.
