Description: The Sixth Annual Yale Fibrosis Symposium is designed to collaboratively address the basic investigative biology of human fibrosis as a process and to translate these discoveries into effective therapies. The meeting consists of a central core of short talks followed by moderated discussions addressing the similarities and differences of fibrosis in common and rare disorders. There will be parallel discussion tracks that address the team diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis, available and investigational fibrosis treatments, and ongoing epidemiological and regulatory efforts. Several talks will follow up on the continued success of efforts to eradicate nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (the focus of this meeting in past years). There will be a juried abstract and poster session, and a keynote address by Dr. John Varga, an internationally recognized expert in scleroderma research.
