Cross-Translational Research in Fibrosis Across Organs

Conference Summary

This SRC will focus on fibroproliferative diseases, including pulmonary fibrosis, systemic sclerosis (skin), liver cirrhosis, cardiovascular disease, progressive kidney disease, and macular degeneration. Fibrosis can affect all tissues and organ systems. Fibrotic tissue remodeling can also influence cancer metastasis and accelerate chronic graft rejection in transplant recipients. Nevertheless, despite its enormous impact on human health, there are currently no approved treatments that directly target the mechanisms of fibrosis. A better understanding of the disease mechanism of fibrosis across organs is of high interest and importance to the scientific community.
