On June 6-9, 2018, the 61st Annual Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference convenes at The Gant Conference Center in Aspen, Colorado. The theme of the conference is Translating Resilience and Pathogenesis to Personalized Therapy for COPD.

With an emphasis on the integration of basic, translational, and clinical approaches, the 2018 conference focuses on a central question: How can knowledge of resilience or susceptibility to develop COPD be translated into more effective therapies?  

To address this central question, we have organized the program into a series of thematic sessions framed by a Keynote Address, Clinical Perspective and NHLBI Perspective. The thematic sessions focus on the following:

    Clinical and molecular heterogeneity of COPD
    COPD as a disease of accelerated aging
    Stem cell dysfunction and regenerative therapies for COPD
    Immune and epithelial cell mechanisms of COPD exacerbations
    Metabolic and biochemical mechanisms of COPD pathogenesis
    Consequences of COPD beyond the obstructed lung

We invite you and your colleagues to submit abstracts​ for consideration for a podium presentation and/or a poster at the conference. We are particularly interested in attracting translational basic or clinical research abstracts related to the selected thematic sessions.
