The lung in VibraSSIM with David Warburton 5 Dec 2017

David Warburton discusses lung structures as they reveal themselves through the use of VibraSSIM imaging technology. VibraSSIM digitally records layers of information as you go down through the tissue. Here, the lung is specially fixed to maintain hydration so its depiction is more similar to the lung’s appearance in the...

Rare Pediatric Respiratory Disease Conference 27 Jul 2017

Rare pediatric respiratory disorders, including childhood interstitial and diffuse lung diseases (chILD), primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and lung involvement in systemic juvenile inflammatory arthritis (sJIA) are high-morbidity, often life-threatening disorders that are poorly understood, under-recognized, and have little evidence-based therapies.


We now have over 5000 high resolution lung images, transcriptomic, proteomic, and lipidomic data and need feedback from users on ways to make the site easier to use.Once the group is set up, we will start the effort with a quick meeting via google hangouts and then ask you to...

LungMAP publication (2017) 11 Jul 2017

In human neonates rapid adaptation from an aqueous intrauterine environment to permanent air breathing is the rate-limiting step for extrauterine life, failure of which justifies the existence of neonatal intensive care units. The lung develops at about 4-6 weeks' gestation in humans as a ventral outpouching of the primitive foregut...

New LungMAP publication (2017) 7 Apr 2017

Many studies have investigated the source and role of epithelial progenitors during lung development; such information is limited for fibroblast populations and their complex role in the developing lung. In this study, we characterized the spatial location, mRNA expression and Immunophenotyping of PDGFRα+ fibroblasts during sacculation and alveolarization.

New LungMAP publication (2017) 3 Mar 2017

Lung immaturity is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in premature infants. Understanding the molecular mechanisms driving normal lung development could provide insights on how to ameliorate disrupted development. While transcriptomic and proteomic analyses of normal lung development have been previously reported, characterization of changes in the lipidome is lacking.

New LungMAP publication (2017) 3 Mar 2017

Biological systems are increasingly being studied by high throughput profiling of molecular data over time. Determining the set of time points to sample in studies that profile several different types of molecular data is still challenging.
