I will be posting much more about the Lung Transplant Research Ambassadors, their mandate and how they came to be. But for now, I would like to thank Ana Stenzel for her initiative in organizing this with APT Pharmaceuticals and a huge thank you to APT Pharmaceuticals for sponsoring this event. APT currently is sponsoring a multi-center clinical trial with the objective of evaluating the effect of chronic rejection in recent recipients of a lung transplant.
