Fall 2011 Pulmonary Research Group Symposium: Obesity: A Modifier of Immunity and Inflammation in the Lung
- By Daniel John Kirk
We have invited leading researchers in obesity and lung disease from across the United States and the Netherlands to attend a meeting on obesity and lung disease. The purpose of this meeting will be to review the current state of knowledge pertaining to the effects of obesity on immunity and inflammation in the lung, with the ultimate goal to identify priorities for new research in this field. In addition you will experience the spectacular fall foliage of Vermont at a top notch resort.
