The Gordon Research Seminar on Lung Development, Injury and Repair is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. This 2017 meeting will focus on new frontiers in pulmonary health and disease, highlighting in vitroin vivo and clinical studies linking causes and mechanisms which are paving ways for new therapies and treatments. 

The 2017 GRC Conference is dedicated to revisiting our understanding of key processes underlying lung development, injury and repair in the context of age, environment and species, with the hope of better understanding disease development and to discover novel therapeutic approaches.

LungMAP Co-investigator Thomas Mariani from the University of Rochester Medical Center (LungMAP Human Tissue Core) will moderate a discussion on Day 2 Monday August 21 called "Layering Regulatory Networks of Differentiation into a Blueprint" which includes a presentation by Yan Xu of LungMAP research site, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Her talk is entitled "Transcriptional Programming of Respiratory Epithelia at Single Cell Level".

On Day 4 Thursday Aug 24, LungMAP principal investigator Naftali Kaminski from Yale University will host a session called "The Rewards of Systems Biology in an Omics Age" which features a presentation by Ziv Bar-Joseph of LungMAP research site Carnegie Mellon University called "Reconstructing Regulatory Networks from Time Series Single Cell Lung Development Data".

Presentation materials from these sessions will be provided here in the coming weeks.
