Who knows – Dr. Dolittle might have the cure

The HPS Network is a co-sponsor of a scientific meeting starting tomorrow called Fibrosis Across the Species. You can read the news story here. We are one of a nice list of sponsors. 

I've been reading a book (will blog about it when I finish it) about what human medicine can learn from veterinary medicine. It’s more than using some lab mice to study human diseases. Sometimes veterinary researchers are hitting on solutions that could be applied to human diseases. That is the aim of this meeting. 

If you follow the world of who is who in pulmonary fibrosis research, there are some “heavy hitters” at this workshop. 

I’m looking forward to seeing what we can learn from our animal cousins. Hopefully this meeting will kick off some meaningful collaborations!
