The field of LAM research has progressed at a rapid pace over the last two decades. Much of the credit for the pace of discovery in LAM goes to the annual International LAM Foundation Research Conference, which has been supported by the NHLBI for each of the last 22 years. The conference attracts experts in every facet of clinical investigation and molecular and cellular biology, including clinical trialists, clinical investigators with expertise in interstitial lung disease and pleural disease, basic scientists from the pulmonary, TSC and smooth muscle communities, geneticists, and experts in lymphangiogenesis. In particular, for this year, authorities in uterine biology will participate. One of the most innovative, motivating and inspiring aspects of the annual LAM meeting has been the interchange between physicians and scientists and the patients and family members who attend each year.

The aims of the 2020 International LAM Research Conference are:

  • To review exciting advances in advanced lung imaging, single cell RNA sequencing, estrogen/uterine signaling, immunotherapy, and metabolic processes that are relevant to LAM.
  • Provide a forum for LAM Clinic Directors to promote best practices and refine LAM Clinical Practice Guidelines, discuss difficult cases, and set priorities for the LAM Clinic Network.
  • To set the stage for another 25 years of scientific progress by launching the first Early Stage Investigator (ESI) Symposium. 
  • Full immersion and integration of patients, families, and friends into all facets of the conference and the research that will favorably impact the health of their loved ones.
