Novel Approaches in Pulmonary Fibrosis: Beyond the Fibroblast

Novel Approaches in Pulmonary Fibrosis: Beyond the Fibroblast

Tuesday, March 24, 2020, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, progressive lung disease with few treatment options. Research on IPF and other interstitial lung diseases has historically focused on fibroblasts and the importance of TGF-beta-driven epithelial to mesenchymal transition. Recently, new data have highlighted key roles for additional cell types including alveolar epithelial cells and endothelial cells in the development or maintenance of lung fibrosis. Moreover, cellular senescence and immune pathways have also been found to contribute to IPF pathogenesis. This symposium will discuss the emerging biological mechanisms underlying the etiology of pulmonary fibrosis and explore novel ways to remove, repair or regenerate damaged lung.
