Converging Molecular Pathways Lead to New Treatments for Pulmonary Hypertension”


Room G07 | Chadwick Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free of charge
Ticketing: Open

This lecture focuses on cardivascular biology and harnessing new information related to bone morphogenetic protein receptor signaling (BMPR2), and gene regulation to develop new therapies for treating patients with pulmonary hypertension. These studies include defining an important role for PPAR gamma in the pathway and in endothelial and smooth muscle cell homeostasis through the production of apelin and apolipoprotein E. This lecture is aimed at people with cardiovascular scientific knowledge.

There will then be a further one-day symposium at the Royal College of Physicians, Friday 7 Sept, exploring ‘hot topics’ in cardiovascular biology. Highlights include novel genetics strategies to study cardiovascular & pulmonary diseases, pathogenesis & therapeutic approaches towards pulmonary vasculature & arterial diseases. The symposium on Friday is aimed at all levels & is suitable for anyone to attend.
