The CRI in Collaboration with Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine “A Lung Three Pointer: Integrin Regulation of Branching, Cilia, and the Basement Membrane”

Dr. Plosa’s research program investigates the role of cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions during lung development, alveolar homeostasis, and repair. Her lab has developed organ specific models that are combined with state-of-the-art cell biological techniques to define fundamental mechanisms whereby integrins regulate epithelial cell behavior in both health and disease. Her laboratory has previously shown that … Read more
