Lung Bioengineering: news, call for papers, AJP-Lung symposium at EB2014

Scientists at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston have confirmed the successful creation of new human lungs, using components from the lungs of deceased children.

CNN explains in a recent article.

For a more in depth look at bioengineering, which is a highly collaborative effort by researchers in diverse areas, at EB2014, AJP-Lung is hosting a symposium titled Bioengineering the Lung: From Myth To Reality. Dr. Y.S. Prakash (Mayo Clinic) and Dr. Kurt Stenmark (UC Denver), who serve as Associate Editors for AJP-Lung, organized this symposium in which leaders in the fields of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, physiology, and immunology will illuminate the existing research.

There’s also a call for papers on this topic in AJP-Lung.  A large number of AJP-Lung papers discuss bioengineering as well.

*Please note the mistake on our program. Dr. Donald E. Ingber will not be speaking at this event.
