Lymphatic research has significantly increased in recent years as information about the lymphatic mechanisms and the \"continuum\" of human biology and disease has grown. As such, the \"lymphatic continuum\" now encompasses cardiovascular disease, respiratory inflammation, obesity, autoimmune disease, and chronic transplant rejection, among many other pathologic conditionas. An exponential growth in technological tools for research has made possible a similar growth in our comprehension of the molecular regulatory processes that govern the normal development and function of the lymphatic system.These and other issues are discussed herein.
