NIH funding to study impact of microenvironment on lung progenitor cell phenotype and function

RFA-HL-18-022: The Impact of Microenvironment on Lung Progenitor Cell Function (R01): https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HL-18-022.html

Purpose:

“This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for basic research to elucidate the impact of microenvironment, which includes cellular components of the niche, extracellular matrix, and soluble factors, on lung progenitor cell phenotype and function during development, homeostasis, repair and regeneration. Multi-disciplinary teams with complementary expertise are encouraged to propose innovative, hypothesis-based studies to catalyze this understudied area critical to advancing lung stem cell biology. This FOA will also support the development of novel 3-dimensional, multi-component models to interrogate lung stem cell niches.”
