Modeling Approaches in Repair & Regeneration

Time: 9:00 am
day: Pre-Conference Seminar Day


  • Reviewing studies involving complex phenotypic models simulating aspects of IPF, such as human lung organoids, human lung tissue ex vivo cultures and co-culture systems to inform why the lung environment is hostile to normal repair
  • Using animal models to recapitulate drivers of lung fibrosis within the lung environment
  • Reflecting on the use of human samples vs. rodent samples; and the repercussions for translatability
  • Comparing the bleomycin model to other emerging animals models of lung fibrosis
