Description

The 2014 Pittsburgh-Munich Lung Conference will highlight the clinical aspects of age-related lung diseases, as well as research advances that will drive the development of new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches for this group of patients. A focus on the molecular mechanisms of aging, the relevance of advanced age in the pathogenesis and susceptibility to pulmonary diseases, and the impact of aging in the clinical presentation and therapeutic approaches of pulmonary diseases will be discussed.  With the increase in the aging population and the prevalence of age-related lung diseases, this conference addressing aging mechanisms of the lung will be the first conference exclusively devoted to this field in the United States.
