Journal Club

Journal Club/Webinar

This Journal Club has been a unique opportunity for members of the PC assembles to communicate about intriguing and significant contemporary literature. We hope that the journal club will provide a venue to encourage scientific dialogue between ATS members and provide opportunities for intellectually stimulating interactions within the ATS community. This PC Journal Club will occur monthly and take on one of the two formats:

  • Text-based summary of high impact research articles, with expert commentary

  • Online webinar with live presentations by international experts and interactive discussion from ATS members

The Assembly on Pulmonary Circulation is pleased to announce its next Journal Club on Wednesday, February 1st, 2023, at 10 AM (ET).

Dr. Rebecca Vanderpool, PhD (Ohio State University) will present the article:

"The Right Ventricular-Pulmonary Arterial Coupling and Diastolic Function Response to Therapy in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Chest 2022;161:1048–1059.

PMID: 34637777

doi: 10.1016/j.chest.2021.09.040

We will be joined by expert discussion panelists Dr. Vanderpool, Dr. Franz Rischard (University of Arizona), Dr. Ryan Tedford (Medical University of South Carolina) and Dr. Khodr Tello (Universities of Giessen, Germany).

We use a web-based platform, which allows real-time discussion making this an interactive journal club.
