Fibrosis is a complex process that results in the replacement of function organ tissue with excessive scarring. Many chronic and life-threatening diseases progress rapidly to fibrosis and the need for new treatments and medication to arrest and reverse fibrosis could not be greater. The causes of fibrosis are currently poorly understood and despite recent progress much is not known about the mechanisms that underpin disease progression. The meeting aims to bring together academic researchers, biotechs and pharma as well as specialist developers of models and research tools to help provide a comprehensive review of fibrosis mechanisms and gain a better perspective on how fibrotic diseases can be treated.
