New ERS Monograph – Lung Stem Cells in Development, Health and Disease
The European Respiratory Society is pleased to announce the publication of the latest instalment in the ERS Monograph book series: Lung Stem Cells in Development, Health and Disease, guest edited by leaders in the field, Marko Z. Nikolić and Brigid L.M. Hogan.
The Guest Editors have brought together diverse group of key authors in the field to provide information about the different classes of stem cells present both in the developing and adult lung: where they are found, how they function in homeostasis and pathologic conditions, the mechanisms that regulate their behaviour, and how they may be harnessed for therapeutic purposes. Whilst the book focuses on stem cells in the mouse and human lung, it also includes the ferret as an increasingly important new model organism. Chapters also discuss how lung tissue, including endogenous stem cells, can be generated in vitro from pluripotent stem cells lines.
This state-of-the-art collection comprehensively covers one of the most exciting areas of respiratory science.
