Scientific presentations and panel discussions led by international content experts will provide a forum to discuss the molecular and cellular basis of LAM, present leading-edge research, integrate concepts, identify creative and innovative research directions, recruit promising junior investigators, and pave the way for future advancements and discoveries in LAM.
This year’s conference is being co-chaired by Elizabeth Henske, MD, from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Stephen Hammes, MD, PhD, from the University of Rochester Medical Center. The abstract and poster session will be chaired by Vera Krymskaya, PhD, MBA, from the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. The conference will be dynamic with ample time for Q&A, discussion, and networking opportunities.
The scientific sessions will cover broad facets of LAM science including recent exciting advances in single-cell RNA sequencing, estrogen signaling, lymphatic biology, and other metabolic processes relevant to LAM. In addition, future direction related to hormonal involvement and improving clinical trial designs to accelerate translation in LAM will be explored in panel-based discussions.
