APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Inflammation and Inflammatory Signaling in Water and Electrolyte Balance or Blood Pressure Control

Featured Topic — Thursday, April 29, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-11
Water and Electrolyte Homeostasis Section — Chair: Jennifer C Sullivan — Co-Chair: Michael J. Ryan

The focus of this session is on the evolving role of the immune system in the regulation of water and electrolyte balance and blood pressure control.  It is now well accepted that many cardiovascular and renal diseases are associated with inflammation.  Yet many questions remain as to how increases in inflammation alter cardiovascular and renal function to promote disease.  The goal of this Featured Topic is to provide new information regarding how immune cells and the release of inflammatory cytokines alter cardiovascular and renal health. This includes, but is not limited to studies of the brain, vasculature, heart, and kidney.
