Our work focuses on lung development and regeneration after injury. It relies heavily on transgenic mice models, and histological analysis, primary cultures etc. We are primarily interested in transferring our knowledge on lung development to repair and disease processes in the adult. All our data indicate that adult lung cells hijack the pathways important for lung development and differentiation to respond to injury.
