Researchers create revolutionary model to study pulmonary diseases

Kenneth Knox, MD, professor and associate dean of faculty affairs and development, and Frederic Zenhausern, PhD, MBA, professor and director of the UA Center for Applied NanoBioscience and Medicine, have received a three-year, $750,000 grant from the Arizona Biomedical Research Commission to study lung infections like Valley fever and inflammatory conditions like sarcoidosis in a plant model.

"The lung is a very complex organ," Dr. Knox said. "There are not many novel ways to study the lung, but growing cells on a leaf would be a way for us to organize cell types in a biologically meaningful way to learn more about lung immunity and lung fibrosis."

Dr. Knox hopes that by using inactive Coccidioides fungus--the cause of Valley fever--to simulate inflammation, they will be better able to understand how inflammation begins, which will pave the way for new therapies.

The study not only will develop an innovative model to study pulmonary disease, but the revolutionary approach, if successful, will allow researchers to bypass testing their theories on animals.
