Call for Abstracts

The PHA 2020 Scientific Sessions Committee is now accepting abstract submissions. Abstract submissions are invited in the areas of basic science, clinical science and case studies. Encore abstract submissions are also welcome as long as the work does not infringe upon any copyright, proprietary or personal right of any third party. Complete instructions and a submission form can be found on the PHA website.

PHA will once again host a Research Room with the aim of furthering research and medical advancements in PH. This is an exciting opportunity for experts to collect data and biological specimens from the largest gathering of PH patients and their caregivers in the world and for patients and caregivers to help further PH research. A form for interested medical professionals, fellows and junior faculty who want to help work in the Research Room will be available online next month.
