- Understand identification of new class of receptors on airway cells
- Discuss potential therapeutic implications of bitter taste receptor signaling in airway diseases
- Explore experimental tools and animal models to study molecular pathogenesis of obstructive pulmonary diseases
Overall Goals and Objectives:
Following this activity, a participant should be able to:
1. Recognize recent advances and developments in Pulmonary Medicine & Critical Care and translate into clinical practice
2. Integrate perspectives of multiple disciplines into decision-making on behalf of patients through structured plans for patient care.
3. Develop areas for future research and discuss appropriate methods to address these needs.
4. Summarize and continually improve communications as a team, caring for Pulmonary/Critical Care patients.
