We are delighted that you are visiting the website of the Pulmonary Circulation (PC) Assembly – the definitive ATS home of all matters relating to the pulmonary circulation. Our Assembly membership includes basic scientists and clinicians interested in the understanding of the vascular basis of lung disease. The scope of scientific and clinical interests of our membership spans a wide range from basic science at the level of cell and molecular biology to translational biology and clinical medicine.
If you are not already a member, we encourage you to join our community by participating in PC-sponsored programmatic events at the ATS International Conference. In particular, we would be very happy to see you at the membership meeting during the International Conference where you will witness new developments and plans for our Assembly. If you would like to take part in PC governance, do not hesitate to drop us an email at: PC@thoracic.org.
Within our mission of advancing knowledge in pulmonary vascular biology and medicine, PC offers several unique opportunities to engage in scientific exchange and education. For example, you could take part in the biennial Grover Conference, develop the program of the ATS International Conference by organizing symposia, postgraduate seminars and workshops under specific subject categories, and you could participate in the PC journal club on this website. In addition, we encourage you to solicit and develop projects for ATS sponsorship.
Thanks for stopping by at our website.
