Vascular and Mucosal Pathobiology Scientific Interest Group

Welcome to the Vascular and Mucosal Pathobiology Scientific Interest Group website!

Tissue injury in response to environmental or pathogenic challenge is associated with an inflammatory response that often occurs at biological interfaces, such as the epithelial barrier and mucosa in the intestinal, respiratory, and urogenital tract, or endothelium in organs and the peripheral vasculature. Regulating the inflammatory response at these interfaces presents special problems because these tissues must maintain vital physiological functions inherent to the cell types that line these biologic surfaces. As such, the complex nature of the mechanisms involved in establishing, maintaining, and repairing these complex biological niches is an area of intense scientific interest that is only beginning to be appreciated. The Vascular And Mucosal Pathobiology Scientific Interest Group (VAMP SIG) is committed to bringing together Investigators, Fellows, and Students who share a passion for epithelial and endothelial cell biology, mucosal inflammation, and immune cell biology.

Establishing our SIG creates a great opportunity to promote among our members a web location for common, in depth scientific discussions of ongoing work, published work, or chit-chat, share protocols and methods, and as an incentive for new collaborations.

The goals of the VAMP Scientific Interest Group are:

  • To promote cutting edge research in the areas of epithelial and endothelial biology and inflammation that focuses on improving the understanding of the complex mechanisms and regulation of inflammation, at all levels of research, from basic to translational and clinical.
  • To establish and maintain efficient flow of information by this this webpage, Facebook Fan page and SIG listserv so that our members, other interested researchers, and teaching faculty can stay abreast of cutting edge research advances and upcoming events in the field.
  • To foster interactions and collaborations amongst researchers in the field by bringing together current members and other interested parties using the internet and email platforms and by hosting events like the VAMP SIG Networking Poster Session and other informal activities at the annual FASEB meeting.
  • To encourage and facilitate the participation and involvement of all interested trainees and newcomers to the field to ensure that the next generation of researchers is able and ready to contribute to the field of Vascular and Mucosal Pathobiology.
