Her passion, love and interest to care for children is evident in this personal account by Paula Tähtinen, Clinical Lecturer, Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine / Adjunct Professor, University of Turku, Finland and ESWI Board Member. The burden of disease from RSV in children is explained along with recommended approaches for both treatment and prevention. 

She gives a concrete example of how research findings have changed treatment guidelines in paediatrics, providing evidence of the importance of scientific scrutiny. We gain insight in how combining the roles of clinician, lecturer and researcher is mutually supportive and learn about her newly-established research group with a bold vision for the future.
