Infant and Child Lung Disorders: Genetics, Diagnostics and Tomorrow's Care

Monday, March 25, 2019

8:00 am

Li Ka Shing, Berg Hall Map

Sponsored by:
Pediatric Pulmonary, Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health

Since the discovery of surfactant protein by John Clements, MD in 1953, scientific findings have motivated dramatic advances in pulmonary medicine. Translating the discovery of surfactant into a clinical tool took more than 30 years, but the result transformed neonatal care for infants worldwide. New discoveries offer the promise of diagnosis and even cure for diseases previously unknown.

The Symposium will bring together leaders from across the United States to address areas of lung biology, including surfactantopathies, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, interstitial lung disease and bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

This symposium is free, but space is limited and registration is required.
