Program Learning Objectives
 
A)   Provide an international forum for leading clinicians and researchers to exchange ideas relating to lung research in the broad field of lung injury, repair, reconstruction and therapeutic outcomes.
B)    Fill knowledge gaps in the understanding of lung injury, repair and reconstruction.
C)    Stimulate new perspectives and research in pulmonary medicine in the area of the lung injury, repair and reconstruction, with significant time allowed for discussion joined by leading national and international experts in basic, translational and clinical research.
At the conclusion of this conference the attendees will be able to:
1)     Describe the developmental basis for the lung injury, repair and reconstruction.
2)    Identify differences in the mechanisms of acute and progressive lung injury and their outcomes.
3)    Describe current understanding of the therapeutic and reconstructive approaches to the treatment of acute and progressive lung injury.
4)    Identify potential therapeutic targets, novel medications and regenerative medicine approaches that could be applied to returning the injured lung to “normal” thereby improving outcome.
5)    Be able to clearly assess and rate shared pathogenic mechanisms that underlie acute and progressive lung injury (e.g. ARDS) and fibrosis (e.g. IPF or other IIPs)
6)    Attendees, specifically junior faculty and trainees, will receive feedback on their research in progress (submitted in the form of abstracts, presented as posters and talks) that they can implement to ensure the quality, innovation, and applicability of their work.
