Inflammatory Paradigms and the Vasculature II
joint with Molecular Mechanisms of Leukocyte Trafficking
Organizer(s): David M. Stern and Judith A. Berliner
Date: April 09 - 14, 2002
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Sponsored in part by The Director's Sponsor Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The vasculature has a central role in the inflammatory and stress responses, serving as a focal point for triggering and resolving acute processes, and participating in the protracted course of chronic disorders. Whereas much attention has been focused on acute mechanisms of inflammation-associated vascular dysfunction, many fewer studies have examined mechanisms contributing to chronic vascular pathologies. Mechanisms underlying vascular cell signaling, especially as relates to shear and metabolic stress, hypoxia, leukocyte trafficking and macrophage activation, will be highlighted in sessions devoted to chemokines, transcription factors (NF-kB and Egr-1), inflammatory cascades, leukocyte adhesion molecules and scavenger-related receptors. Parallels between chronic inflammatory networks in atherosclerosis and cellular mechanisms activated by oxygen deprivation, dysregulation of lipoprotein turnover and shear stress will be emphasized.
