Pulmonary Pathobiology

The Pulmonary Pathobiology Scientific Interest Group (SIG) is a meeting ground for researchers interested in promoting the study of the pathogenesis of lung cancers and non-neoplastic lung diseases. Topics of interest among our members include:

  • Acute lung injury
  • Mechanisms of pulmonary fibrosis
  • Immunopathology of lung diseases
  • Pathogenesis and molecular pathology of obstructive lung diseases
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Matrix metalloproteinases in lung injury and repair
  • Stem cells in lung diseases
  • Lung transplantation
  • Molecular mechanisms and pathways in carcinogenesis of the lung
  • Targets for future therapy in lung cancer

The Pulmonary Pathobiology SIG is interested in organizing programs for future scientific meetings and will try to encourage exchange of information among members interested in these topics. We would also like to provide networking and collaborative opportunities for experimental pulmonary pathologists. Please contact Dani Zander if you have suggestions. We would appreciate your input.
