The California Thoracic Society is continuing its plans to provide webinars on a wide range of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine issues on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month. These webinars will be non branded and educational in nature, frequently developed with collaboration from various pharmaceutical and device companies.
All of the webinars will provide an opportunity for live Q&A sessions at the conclusion of the formal presentation.
Please join us for a special educational webinar and LIVE Q&A on September 30th at 5pm PT.
Topic: A New Understanding of Epithelial Alarmins in Asthma
Speaker: Matthew Drake, MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine
Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, School of Medicine OHSU
Dr. Drake’s research focuses on airway neurobiology and innate immunity in asthma, with a particular focus on Toll-like Receptors. Dr. Drake has shown that Toll-like Receptor 7 agonists act as a novel class of bronchodilators via the induction of nitric oxide. He has also shown that airway parasympathetic nerves express Toll-like Receptor 7. His current work focuses on the significance and mechanisms of Toll-like Receptor signaling on airway nerves in models of non-allergic and allergic airway inflammation.
There will be an opportunity for live Q&A at the conclusion of the formal presentation.
