CTS Member Reception at ATS 2014

The California Thoracic Society (CTS) will host a Member Reception on May 19th. Please join Dr. Michael Matthay, the 2014 Trudeau Medal Recipient, and CTS at the Hilton Bayfront (Sapphire Room) from 12:30pm - 2:00pm.

Michael Matthay, MD, of  University of California, San Francisco, will be awarded the Trudeau Medal at ATS 2014, the Society’s highest honor. The medal recognizes an individual’s lifelong contributions to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lung disease through leadership in research, education, or clinical care. Dr. Matthay’s research has defined the major mechanisms of alveolar fluid clearance and dissected their role in human disease with a particular focus on acute lung injury and ARDS. His research has been used as the foundation for a number of major clinical trials that he helped to design.

Come visit the California Thoracic Society booth in the Exhibit Hall of ATS 2014! We will be located at Booth 4343!
