The Pittsburgh International Lung Conference

October 29-30, 2020

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the organizing committee has made the challenging decision to cancel the 2020 Pittsburgh International Lung Conference on Metabolism in Lung Biology.  

We feel strongly that many of the benefits of this conference result from the in-person interactions, which would be difficult to recreate virtually. In order to maintain the integrity of the conference, while following the safest path forward for all of our guests, we are rescheduling this event for October 2021. Please visit the conference website for the latest updates.

The Pittsburgh International Lung Conference (PILC) has been a leading meeting in the field of Pulmonary Medicine for more than 15 years. With a focus on the presentation of cutting-edge topics in clinical, translational, and basic research, the PILC brings together leaders from institutions across the country and internationally to participate in thematic discussion and foster collaboration. 

In this year’s Pittsburgh International Lung Conference, we aim to focus new insights on lung function and disease by examining the metabolism of the cells, tissues, and microenvironment within this complex organ. Our program will feature local and international experts in the fields of Metabolomics, Vascular biology, Epithelial biology, Microbiology, and Immunology who have all contributed new and important work on the metabolic basis of disease and helped paint a richer landscape of our understanding of human medicine. 

Please visit the conference website often for updates, as they become available: It will offer many other details regarding the conference, travel, and our Pittsburgh area in general. A call for abstracts portal will also open on this site in Spring 2020. We hope you will consider submitting an abstract and joining us as a registrant in October!
