Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Injury, Inflammation and Fibrosis Conference
Fibrosis is a common response of many organs to chronic injury and inflammation. This leads to destruction of organ architecture with loss of function. Until recently, there have been no therapies to slow the progression of fibrosis and to maintain normal organ function. Recent advances have provided new insights into the pathogenesis of fibrosis, new drug targets, and new drugs in clinical studies.
Some themes discuessed at this conference are:
- Core mechanisms underlying inflammation and fibrosis
- To compare and contrast fibrotic diseases,
- Preclinical models,
- The potential for regeneration and regression of fibrosis,
- Potential therapies.
This conference will be an opportunity for investigators who are focused on organ-specific diseases i.e., medical subspecialists, to participate in cross-disciplinary, multi-organ discussions in order to gain new insights into their research.
