About the Conference

The Grover Conference is held on a biennial basis and is the only international meeting in North America that repeatedly focuses on subjects relevant to lung vascular biology and medicine. Since its inauguration in 1984, the 2023 Grover Conference will be the 20th in this series, representing the longest-standing conference on Pulmonary Circulation. Named in honor of Robert F. Grover, the Conference is held in a secluded, rural setting in the Rocky Mountains. The participation of young scientists is particularly encouraged. The setting has been proven many times to be an excellent meeting that has led to fruitful collaborations between investigators young and old, often in different fields. You are encouraged to participate in future Grover Conferences by coming to the meeting and by taking part in the planning and development of new subjects. More information can be obtained from the PC Assembly Chair.

Precision Medicine for Pulmonary Vascular Disease: The Future is Now

At the conclusion of this session, the learner will be able to:

  1. Recognize what precision medicine is and how it can improve diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary vascular disorders.

  2. Understand the state-of-the-art knowledge concerning clinical aspects and pathophysiology of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and how precision medicine could help address current gaps.

  3. Understand the current state of the fields of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and epigenetics in PAH and CTEPH and how data can be integrated into a comprehensive tool for drug and biomarker discovery.

  4. Discuss technological advances in gene sequencing, deep cell phenotyping, humanized animal models and organ-on-a-chip strategies.

  5. Discuss how precision medicine can improve the current design and outcome analysis of clinical trials in PAH and CTEPH.

  6. Recognize the role of medical record and bioethics in implementing precision medicine in the clinic, when individualizing care of patients and sharing information with caregivers and other professionals.
