Advancing Disease-Modifying Pulmonary Fibrosis Drugs

2023 Attending Companies

Harness Emerging Biological Understanding, Employ Novel Dynamic Preclinical Models to Cement Translational Confidence & Capture Imaging Endpoints To Develop & Advance the Next Generation of IPF Drugs 

With Nintedanib and Pirfenidone set to lose their patents in the next 3-6 years, Pliant Therapeutics moving into phase 2b, Vicore and Galecto’s phase 2 studies expected to read out, and Bristol Myers Squibb’s and Boehringer Ingelheim’s clinical trials both well under way…the race is on to advance the next generation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis drugs and beat the benchmark set by the standard of care. 2023 has already been a turbulent year...

We’re at the precipice of hailing disease-modifying IPF drugs to patients with the increasing understanding of lung pathobiology and cell cross talk using multi-omic approaches expanding the horizons of therapeutic targets to slow, halt, reverse and regenerate progressively fibrosing lung tissue. Imaging and AI are being harnessed more than ever to show therapeutic efficacy beyond lung function and clinical trials are being designed to be more effective and swifter.

The 7th IPF Summit was the undisputed, comprehensive, end-to-end, 3-day conference for you and your team to grasp the latest readouts and take new insights back to your therapeutic development. Don’t miss this opportunity next year to discuss the latest unpublished data and network with 150+ movers and shakers in the pulmonary fibrosis field.

Fresh Faces & Returning KOLs

We're pleased to have welcomed 31+ new speakers for this year alongside 19 returning organizations to the agenda to give you the latest updates directly from senior decision makers in the field.

3-Track Seminar Day

Attendees had the opportunity to take advantage of our new tracked seminar day, which allowed them to get in-depth content suitable for their therapeutic stage. They chose between:

  • Emerging Biology Seminar Day
  • Translational Seminar Day
  • Clinical Seminar Day

New Ambassador Evening!

Attendees had the opportunity to connect with their peers the evening before the main conference in a relaxed atmosphere and listened to a Fireside Chat on the future of therapeutic development from pulmonary fibrosis leaders
