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