The Lung Epithelium Conference: In Health and Disease

August 7-12, 2022
Saxtons River, VT


August 7-12, 2022

This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) focuses on the fundamental mechanisms of lung development and regeneration and the development of new therapeutic approaches for lung diseases. It is the 11th biannual conference mainly focused on lung epithelial biology.

The conference will bring together developmental, cell, and molecular biologists, geneticists, physiologists, clinicians, and translational researchers with a primary interest in lung biology. It provides a unique platform for attendees to learn, communicate, and distribute the knowledge.

Important Dates

Abstract Deadline: June 27, 2022
Early Registration Deadline: July 7, 2022
Cancellation Deadline: July 17, 2022

The conference's main themes are: 1) Molecular mechanisms of lung epithelial development and repair/regeneration; 2) Common and unique pathways of intra-epithelial communications in lung physiology and diseases; 3) Genomic and gene expression analysis to investigate lung development and diseases.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Molecular and genetic aspects of neonatal lung development
  • Cell-cell communication in lung development and diseases
  • Lung stem cells and niche
  • Cellular stress in lung epithelium
  • Lung disease at single-cell resolution
  • COVID-19 and beyond
  • Innovative technology for the study of lung disease
  • Immunity function of lung epithelium

The conference covers eight sessions and 16 abstract presentations, one “Meet the Experts” session dedicated to facilitating scientific and social interactions among all participants, and two Career Development Workshops designated for trainees or new investigators.
