Resolution of Inflammation
The New York Academy of Sciences is pleased to announce a four-part webinar series which will focus on inflammation, its role in many commonly occurring diseases, and implications for emerging therapeutic approaches.
All webinars in the series are free for Members ($10 each for Nonmembers), but advance registration is required. A link to the video recording of each webinar will be provided to registrants within 30 days of the event date, and will remain available for 60 days following publication, after which it will revert to Member-only access. Not a Member? Join today.
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.
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.
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.
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.
