    Description: The specific aims for the 2015 International LAM Foundation Research Conference are as follows: 1) to review research developments in LAM, 2) to attract new investigators to LAM research, 3) to identify promising new LAM research directions, 4) to attempt to reach a consensus on difficult LAM treatment and management issues, and 5) to facilitate `bench to bedside' dialog between researchers, clinicians and LAM patients including research opportunities, clinical treatment options, and patient-centered approaches to care.

  • 2013 LAM Symposium, Friday, April 12, 2013 - Sunday, April 14, 2013
    Location: The Westin Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
    Description: The goals of this conference are to provide a forum for leading experts to discuss the molecular and cellular basis of LAM, to review the clinical management of LAM, and to present cutting-edge research. The specific aims are: 1) to discuss research developments in LAM, 2) to attract new investigators from parallel fields to LAM research, 3) to identify promising new LAM research directions, and 4) to educate patients and family members about research.

  • 2012 International LAM Research Conference , Friday, April 20, 2012 - Sunday, April 22, 2012
    Location: The Westin Hotel, Cincinnati, OH
    Description: Anticipated goals of this conference: to provide a forum for leading experts to discuss the molecular and cellular basis of LAM, review the clinical management of LAM, to present cutting edge research, to integrate concepts and to identify creative and innovative research directions.

  • 2011 International LAM Research Conference , Friday, April 08, 2011 - Sunday, April 10, 2011
    Location: The Westin Hotel, Cincinnati, Ohio
    Description: The goals of this conference were to provide a forum for leading experts to discuss the molecular and cellular basis of lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), to review the clinical management of LAM, to present cutting edge research, to integrate concepts, and to identify creative and innovative research directions.

  • 2010 NHLBI/LAM Foundation International Lymphangioleiomyomatosis Research , Friday, April 09, 2010 - Sunday, April 11, 2010
    Location: Westin Hotel, Cincinnati, Ohio
    Description: The broad objectives for the 2010 LAM Research Conference were to review research developments in lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), attract new investigators to LAM research, identify promising new LAM research directions, and attempt to reach consensus on difficult clinical issues. The investigators thought that a 2010 LAM Research Conference was needed to sustain the momentum that has brought the LAM field from obscurity to trials based on molecular targets. The advances in understanding of the molecular and cellular basis of the disease have been remarkable, and the basic science community, the clinical science community, and LAM patients are all aligned to continue to address this problem in an aggressive, cooperative, and intelligent manner. They were confident that the 2010 LAM Research Conference would chart the course for new research directions in LAM, assist the clinical community in arriving at consensus on the optimal management of LAM, and provide hope to those affected by the disease.

  • 2007 LAM Foundation Lymphangioleiomyomatosis International Research Conference, Friday, April 20, 2007 - Sunday, April 22, 2007
    Location: Cincinnati, OH
    Description: This meeting brought together basic scientists working in different disciplines pertinent to lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) with pharmaceutical experts from industry, clinical investigators, patients, and other advocates to advance research on understanding and treating LAM. The ultimate goal was to identify new targets for therapeutic interventions.
