Penn Cell Biologist's $5.2 Million Grant from NIH for Lung Regeneration Research

Penn Medicine researchers, along with colleagues at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Boston University, have received a $5.2 million, seven-year grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms that promote lung regeneration. The aim of the grant is to develop treatments for children with congenital lung diseases and adults whose lungs have been damaged from smoking, genetic defects and acute injury.

The Penn—Cincinnati Children’s Hospital—Boston University research group is one of seven new research hubs that will comprise the new Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium, bringing together multidisciplinary researchers in the heart, lung, blood and technology fields from different institutions throughout the country. Recipient institutions will receive a total of $40 million over the next seven years. The consortium’s focus will be on translating advances in progenitor cell biology to new treatments for heart, lung and blood diseases.
