About lung stem cells
The ERS Monograph is part of a prestigious book series published by the European Respiratory Society. The current book focusses on lung stem cells: where they are found, how they function, how they may be harnessed for therapeutic purposes and how lung tissue can be generated in the laboratory from lung stem cells. This state-of-the-art publication therefore covers one of the most exciting areas of respiratory science.
Lung stem cells play an important role in the Lung Regeneration research programme of Lung Foundation Netherlands (Longfonds). Led by prof.dr. Hans Clevers, an international consortium of renowned scientists is aiming to grow mini-alveoli from lung stem cells.
