CBET Biopharmaceutical Webinar Series – Dale Tang
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Asthma is a serious lung disease that affects 300 million people worldwide. Asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, airway remodeling and lung inflammation. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying these pathological processes are not fully elucidated. In this presentation, emerging role of protein kinases and adapter protein in airway smooth muscle contractility, proliferation, migration and asthma pathogenesis will be discussed. Better understanding of asthma pathogenesis provides fundamental knowledge to develop new therapy for the treatment of asthma.
