Pneumonia is a leading cause of death globally. With the current approach to pneumonia, which includes diagnosis by symptoms and chest radiograph and management with antibiotics, morbidity and mortality remain high. Precision medicine calls for multidimensional characterization of a patient to identify factors that may indicate favorable responses to an intervention. The identification of phenotypes and endotypes are crucial for the development of targeted therapies in pneumonia. In this session, experts will introduce the audience to emerging research that supports the presence of phenotypes in pneumonia and discuss clinical tools that can enhance precision medicine in pneumonia.

• Improve precision in the diagnosis and management of patients with pneumonia utilizing clinically available resources like guidelines and culture-independent diagnostic tools
• Understand the existing phenotypes and endotypes in pneumonia and methods to evaluate their trajectory over time
• Define and implement research strategies to characterize patients with pneumonia
