Monday, February 27, 2017, brings a new edition of Pulmonary Pathology Reviews, a multi-institutional journal club intended to keep you connected to the fast paced world of peer-reviewed science relevant to those with an interest in diagnostic thoracic pathology. This edition comes to us courtesy of Kristine Konopka at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Click here to open or download a PDF version of her article summaries - a useful tool for getting to the meat of the topic without having to actually read the papers themselves! If you want to listen to how it all went down at 09:15 EST click here to download an MP3 audiofile of the teleconference. An ARTICLE INDEX follows with links to PubMed abstracts and full text versions of the articles depending on the access licensed by your institution. Enjoy!
