The LAM Foundation and the NCATS/NIH Rare Lung Diseases Consortium are accepting abstracts for the 2018 International Rare Lung Diseases Research Conference. The meeting will be held September 6-9 at the Cincinnati Marriott at Rivercenter. Abstracts will be accepted through the submission portal until midnight Eastern on June 15.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference chairs and selected for platform or poster presentations based on scientific merit and alignment with session themes. The poster session’s objective is to provide a state-of-the-art overview of research progress in rare lung diseases, including lymphangioleiomyomatosis, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, generalized lymphatic anomalies, Hermansky Pudlak Syndrome, and Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Studies on basic science, translational science, and clinical aspects of all rare lung diseases are welcome.
