Development of a Three-Dimensional In Vitro Tissue Model of the Human Lung Alveolus

Zukas, Heather.
2017

Abstract: There are currently limited models available for effectively studying lung diseases and drug response aside from animal and clinical trials. This is due to the complexity of the lung's structure and function. The goal of this project was to develop a proof of concept three-dimensional tissue model of a lung alveolus capable of replicating the ventilation cycle using a silk-based hydrogel... read more
