Extract

The format of the 44th Annual Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference was somewhat different than those of previous meetings in that the organizers, led by Drs. David Rodman and Mark Geraci, chose to focus on new approaches rather than on a specific disease process. This seemed especially appropriate given the recent excitement relating to the announcement of the completion of the sequencing of the human genome and the virtual explosion of microarray “chip” technology. My goal is to briefly summarize some of the accomplishments, limitations, and possible future directions of pulmonary genetics, genomics, and gene therapy that were discussed at this conference. For details, the reader is referred to the excellent articles describing each of the presentations in this supplement issue of CHEST.
