The theme of the 50th Meeting of the Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference is “Lung Injury and Repair”.   With an emphasis on integration between basic, translational and clinical sciences, the meeting will focus on the central question of why the lung repairs normally in some individuals following injury, yet becomes progressively fibrotic in other individuals.  Anchored by twelve “state-of-the-art” presentations, thematic sessions will address the mechanisms of lung injury and its resolution, basic processes underlying the development of fibrosis, the role of endogenous and bone marrow-derived stem cells in lung injury and repair, and the genetics of lung injury and fibrosis. Paul W. Noble, Duke University, will be the Conference Summarizer.  Abstract deadline is February 14, 2007.  For more information, contact: David  W.H. Riches, Ph.D., c/o Jeanne Cleary, Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference, Box C272, 4200 East 9th Avenue, Denver, CO 80262.  Phone:  (303) 315-7767; (303)752-2681.  Fax:  (303)752-2678.  E-Mail: or visit our website at

History of the Aspen Lung Conference

History of the Aspen Lung ConferenceReserve your limited edition book today...

Forty-eight conferences have now been held. Over the years the conference has more than maintained its excellence and has stimulated collaboration among scientist and clinicians. This book is an effort to capture the essence of Aspen Lung Conference proceedings in one volume. Accordingly, all previously published summaries have been included for the convenience of the reader. Additional selected comments and presentations are included. Although this book's major goal is to report some of the fantastic scientific advances presented at the Aspen Lung Conference, it will never be able to capture all of the spirit and camaraderie that has permeated each and every meeting in the invigorating, high altitude atmosphere of the Rocky Mountains.
