Featuring seven esteemed speakers in the field of fibrosis, attendees will have the opportunity to gain a well-rounded understanding of the diverse approaches people have taken to solve real-world problems in fibrotic disease. Over the course of the day, presentations will cover both the basic science done in a laboratory as well as the clinical science involved in therapy development in a wide variety of fibrotic diseases, ranging from renal and pulmonary fibrosis to cystic fibrosis.
