Mechanisms Driving the Resolution of Inflammation

Inflammation is a common feature of many widely occurring human diseases. Featuring Charles Serhan of Harvard Medical School, and Catherine Godson of University College Dublin, this webinar will explore recent research on the molecular mechanisms driving resolution of inflammation, and approaches to therapeutically target these pathways in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

Environmental Disrupters

February 26, 2020
11:30 AM – 12:45 PM EST

Environmental Disrupters, Lung Disease and Cancer

Chronic inflammation can be caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Featuring Patricia Sime of Virginia Commonwealth University, and Dipak Panigrahy of Harvard Medical School, this webinar will examine the newest research describing how chronic inflammation can promote lung disease and cancer, with emphasis on emerging therapeutic approaches that promote resolution of inflammation.

Resolution of Neuro-inflammation

March 25, 2020
11:30 AM – 12:45 PM EDT

Resolution of Neuro-Inflammation in Cognitive Dysfunction and Pain

Inflammation in the nervous system plays a key role in many acute health problems including neurodegeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, and chronic pain. Featuring Marianne Schultzberg of the Karolinska Institute, and Ru-Rong Ji of the Duke Center for Translational Pain Medicine, this webinar will explore how the body’s failure to resolve chronic neuro-inflammation contributes to disease, as well as opportunities to develop pro-resolving compounds as novel therapies.

Treating Cardiovascular Disease

April 27, 2020
11:30 AM – 12:45 PM

Resolving Inflammation to Treat Cardiovascular Disease

Every year in the United States, more than 1.5 million people suffer from a heart attack or a stroke. Featuring Paul Ridker of Harvard Medical School, and Gabrielle Fredman of Albany Medical College, this webinar will elucidate the links between chronic inflammation and these conditions, and discuss how strategies to resolve inflammation could lead to new therapies.
