Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for a virtual Research Happy Hour at the DACCPM!

We are delighted to have Dr. Sydney Montesi, M.D., present and discuss her work in developing an imaging platform for studying pulmonary fibrosis using a novel tracer for Positron Emission Tomography (PET). This is a very exciting development in pulmonary imaging (Montesi SB, et al. J Clin Invest. 2019,https://doi.org/gmtv4r).

The meeting format will be 50% time for the presentation and 50% for discussion. Questions can be asked during the presentation and will be moderated. This format has been very successful, engaging, and inspiring for the participants. It allows us to explore details and gain insights beyond traditional talks. Some of you may know this format as the style of the legendary flow-volume-underworld meetings.

Tilo Winkler, host of this RHH

Molecular PET Imaging of Pulmonary Fibrosis
 
Early detection of fibrotic disease, confirmation of target expression, and assessment of treatment responses are highly relevant topics for pulmonary fibrosis. However, molecular imaging, with a high potential for advances in addressing these challenges, remains underutilized. This talk will review concepts around molecular imaging and highlight the development of several probes to assess targets or molecules implicated in the development of fibrosis. Additionally, this talk will discuss the application of molecular imaging to pulmonary fibrosis to assess disease activity and treatment effects.
