Understanding Pulmonary Fibrosis using iPSC Technology

Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to obtain lung fibroblasts (a cell type that participates in fibrosis of the lung) to study then in the laboratory to identify why they are different from fibroblast from normal individuals.

Once these cells are obtained, they will be grown in culture plates in the laboratory to be developed into many different cell types. These cells will be evaluated for their function in the laboratory, and to determine if they can continue to grow/function. Any cells that are left will be frozen for use in future experiments.
