NIH is hosting a research workshop in September to help us better understand how the lymphatic system develops and functions in sickness and in health. The workshop aims to improve how we manage and treat lymphatic disorders. Hosted by the NHLBI and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) in coordination with the Trans-NIH Lymphatic Coordinating Committee, the workshop will bring together basic, clinical, and translational scientists, along with members of the lymphatics community, to explore the latest advances in the field and share research progress.

International experts will discuss current research, explore knowledge gaps, and identify opportunities in lymphatic disease research. People with lymphedema, lipedema, and other lymphatic diseases will share their personal experiences. Workshop organizers hope the event will build collaborative partnerships among scientists, clinicians, patients, and patient advocates. Featured topics include lymphedema and the role of lymphatics in obesity.
