Sex and Gender in Respiratory Physiology

Featured Topic — Sunday, April 7, 2019 — 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM — Convention Center, Room W311G
Respiration Section — Chair: Patricia Silveyra — Co-Chair: Y. S. Prakash
Cosponsored by AJP - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology

Both sex and gender differences impact many aspects of lung physiology, development, and disease. These may translate into differences in disease susceptibility, presentation, severity, associated outcomes, and response to treatment. The biology behind the observed differences is poorly understood. Sex differences in inflammatory mechanisms and modulation of lung function by sex hormones have been proposed. This session will highlight recent research on sex and gender differences in lung development, function, and pathology, with an emphasis on mechanisms of sex hormone regulation.
