Event Details

Toronto Ventilation Study Group – The MOAI Sessions – Mechanisms Of Associated Injury (Mechanics, Inflammation, Immunology)

We propose: i) a regular forum to discuss research projects that are at an early stage: i.e. a good idea, a hypothesis, or data at a pilot stage; ii) experts in the field and their trainees to attend regularly (there are lots in the city); iii) to help move ideas about the mechanisms and physiology of mechanical ventilation toward clinical testing; iv) to benefit from the high level of expertise that exists on these topics in Toronto from basic science to applied physiological research.
Everyone is welcome – each hospital and research institute has clinicians and scientists with special interest or expertise in mechanical ventilation or lung physiology.
