Keystone Symposia: Injury, Inflammation and Fibrosis 2017
The Keystone Symposia will bring together basic biologists and translational and clinical researchers to discuss core mechanisms underlying inflammation and fibrosis, to compare and contrast fibrotic diseases, preclinical models, the potential for regeneration and regression of fibrosis, and potential therapies.
The interaction between the host genetics, the environment and the microbiome in the pathogenesis of fibrotic diseases will be addressed.
Also, non-invasive methods to assess fibrosis including advanced imaging and intermediate biomarkers will be discussed. This conference will be a unique opportunity for investigators who are focused on organ-specific diseases – i.e., medical subspecialists – to participate in cross-disciplinary, multi-organ discussions in order to gain new insights into their research.
