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.
