Cell Injury

The Cell Injury SIG (Der Schadenklub) was created to give a forum for investigators studying how tissues respond to stress by cell death, repair, and remodeling. Our overarching mission is to develop a community of researchers interested in wound healing, biological stress responses, molecular chaperones, radiobiology, biomechanics, and biomedical engineering, as well as trauma and critical care medicine to promote the development of novel therapeutic strategies for pathological disorders.

Cell Injury meets once a year during the ASIP's annual meeting at a poster session and social networking event. Additionally, the group has its own listserv to facilitate communication among members and sponsors a mini-symposium at Experimental Biology featuring prominent and up and coming investigators in the area for cell injury.

The objectives of the Cell Injury Scientific Interest Group are:

  • To foster dialogue, collaborations and networking between researchers with common interests in cell injury.
  • To bring together investigators to discuss and address the common causes of cell injury such as hypoxia and ischemia, chemical and physical agents, infections, immunological reaction, genetic defects, and others.
  • To disseminate scientific knowledge in the discipline and foster investigations into classification, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapeutic development.
  • To encourage and facilitate the participation and involvement of all interested trainees to produce the next generation of well-trained experimental pathologists.
