E13.5 wt celsr1 and cytok whole lung

This hub brings together groups who are investigating the mechanisms underlying generation and maintenance of the lungs through out the lifetime and the processes that lead to degenerative lung diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our research aims to identify novel treatments to repair or regenerate damaged lung tissue.
