APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

APS President's Symposium Series. Cellular Cross-Talk to Orchestrate Tissue Repair

Symposium — Thursday, April 29, 2021 — 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM — Virtual Session, Room APS-1
President's Symposium Series — Chair: Linda Samuelson — Co-Chair: Jason C. Mills

The body has numerous strategies to orchestrate healing in response to injury. Different tissue-resident or infiltrating cell populations have been identified to provide restorative signals. This symposium brings together speakers that have defined key cells and signals that drive the process of in vivo tissue repair.
