This workshop will highlight the recent advances in our understanding of the pathobiology of lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) by using single cell RNA-sequencing. Following the presentations, there will be an open discussion aimed at synthesizing the combined knowledge from each unique investigation and devising strategies to address the key unanswered questions in LAM. Please join us on Friday, August 20, 2021, at 11:00 AM ET (3:00​ PM GMT).
