Brigham Lung Research Day

Friday May 12, 2023 | 2:30PM - 6PM

The Brigham Research Institute’s Lung Research Center is hosting their Lung Research Day which will feature a keynote address by Jeffrey A. Whitsett, MD, from the University of Cincinnati. The event will also include a poster session open to all Brigham researchers that work in lung biology.

The symposium aims to bring together pulmonary-related researchers and clinicians at the Brigham, as well as highlight research achievements within the lung community and promote cross-collaborative efforts.
