Scientific meeting on pulmonary hypertension, December 7-8

What: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is convening a scientific conference to explore the latest evidence regarding pulmonary hypertension. "Evolution of Pulmonary Hypertension: Emerging Diseases and Novel Therapeutics Meeting" is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the NIH Office of Rare Diseases, and the Clinical Center Critical Care Medicine Department.

Why: Pulmonary hypertension, or continuous high blood pressure in the blood vessels of the lungs, is a disabling and often fatal disease, which affects people of all ages from newborns to seniors. Pulmonary hypertension contributes to an estimated 15,000 deaths in the United States annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The goal of the meeting is to foster research collaboration to improve the detection and treatment of pulmonary hypertension.

When: December 7 (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), and December 8 (8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.)

Where: NIH Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, Maryland

More Information:

The meeting will include presentations from 30 scientists, academic researchers, physicians, and patient advocates, from around the world. Scientific sessions will address the pathology of pulmonary hypertension, emerging diseases found to contribute to the development of the disease, current and novel therapies, research opportunities, and future strategies for patient management. Among the NIH intramural scientists presenting at the conference are NHLBI scientists Mark T. Gladwin, M.D., Roberto F. P. Machado, M.D., Gregory Kato, M.D., and Manfred Boehm, M.D, and Henry Masur, M.D., of the Clinical Centers Critical Care Medicine Department.
