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.
