Cell Stem Cell
, also sheds light on how aging can cause lung regeneration to go awry, which can lead to lung cancer and other diseases. “There currently are few therapies that target the biology of lung diseases,” said Dr. Brigitte Gomperts, a professor and vice chair of research in pediatric hematology-oncology at the UCLA Children’s Discovery and Innovation Institute and the paper’s senior author.
