Nov 3, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 3, 2017 3:20pm

Description

Innate immune defects contribute significantly to the pathogenesis of Cystic Fibrosis. In this session we will explore the roles of mucus in host defense and how these functions may be defective in CF.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Assess how ion transport and cellular signaling impacts mucus structure and function.
  2. Examine immune cell regulation of mucus properties in the CF airway.
