This volume addresses current research on the biology of the lymphatic system and the role of lymphatics in organ function, with an emphasis on the digestive system as well as needs for future research on lymphatics in areas of National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) interest. The workshop from which this volume is based brought together investigators working on a variety of systems to stimulate discussion, particularly with respect to research that may form a basis for future therapies to address organ dysfunction related to lymphatics.
