APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Pathogenic Mechanisms of Electronic Cigarette or Vaping Associated Lung Injury (EVALI)

Nonfunded Featured Topic — Friday, April 30, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-12
Respiration Section — Chair: Xinping Yue — Co-Chair: Denise Al Alam

There is an emerging appreciation of E-cigarettes and/or vaping as a novel cause of acute lung injury (EVALI).  This Featured Topic, which is a refinement of a Scientific Symposium previously programmed for the 2020 EB meeting, seeks to incorporate state-of-the-art mechanistic studies of EVALI.  Of note, this Featured Topic is designed for flexibilty to incorporate studies of COVID-19, which may be shaped by antecedent inhalational nicotine/vaping.
