Exploring New Therapeutic Pathways in PH: Metabolism, Proliferation, and Personalized Medicine

June 5-8, 2019: Aspen, Colorado

On June 5-8, 2019 the 62nd Annual Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference will convene at The Gant Conference Center in Aspen, Colorado.   The theme of the conference will be “Exploring New Therapeutic Pathways in Pulmonary Hypertension: Metabolism, Proliferation and Personalized Medicine”. The pulmonary hypertension (PH) field has increasingly recognized that the pulmonary vascular pathology has neoplastic-like features, including the identification of key shared pathophysiology commonalities and has now spawned clinical trials of chemotherapy agents in patients with PH. The 2019 Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference will explore the common mechanisms found in neoplasia and PH, with the overall goal of translating our understanding of cellular metabolism, proliferation and signaling into more effective therapies for patients with PH. The four days of the conference will integrate basic, translational, and clinical approaches while focusing on the following themes in PH: Cellular Metabolism, Hypoxia Signaling, Aberrant Cellular Proliferation and Personalized Medicine.

We invite you and your colleagues to submit abstracts​ for consideration for a podium presentation and/or a poster at the conference. We are particularly interested in attracting translational basic or clinical research abstracts related to the selected thematic topics.


Intended Audience: Local/Regional/National/International Physicians/Clinicians (adult and pediatric)/Research Physician-Scientists in Pulmonary Sciences, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine/Primary Care Physicians/General Medicine Physicians/Public Health.

We look forward to your participation in the Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference, 62nd Annual Meeting and to a combination of outstanding science and great fun. We hope that you and your colleagues can join us.
