American Thoracic Society (ATS) International Conference
May 17 – 22, 2013
Few meetings offer as many advantages as the American Thoracic Society International Conference to biomedical scientists working in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.
No other meeting provides as much information about how the science of respiratory medicine is changing clinical practice and improving respiratory health in the United States and around the world.
Virtually all of the thought leaders in the field, whether they work in industry, government, academia, or clinical practice, will participate in the meeting.
By bringing together experts in science and clinical care, the ATS International Conference fosters collaborations that extend years and continents beyond the conference.
Among the sessions that may be of particular interest to you:
- Science Core—New at ATS 2013, the Science Core is a thematically linked set of symposia and abstract-based sessions on Lung Tissue Injury and Repair. Three internationally recognized researchers will explore how advances in heart and liver repair might be applied to the lung during the Scientific Breakthroughs of the Year session.
- Clinical Year in Review—Experts in 16 areas analyze the most important papers published during the past year, highlighting new therapeutic targets and guidelines.
- Presentations by U.S. Government-funded Agencies—The NHLBI, FDA, NIOSH, CDC, NIAID, NIGMS, and the VA typically lead sessions, giving industry scientists an insider’s view of the priorities, programs, and clinical studies.
- Drug Discovery & Development for Respiratory Disease—Government, industry, and academic experts in identify new therapeutic treatments for lung disease and its phenotypes will discuss their experience of translating basic science into medicine.
There are also ample opportunities for informal discussions. The Science and Innovation Center facilitates networking among basic and translational scientists and the Clinical Trial Awareness Center enables companies to recruit for clinical trials.
