Differentiation of MSCs Into Alveolar Epithelium

These researchers are investigating repair of lung injury. They wish to demonstrate that Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have differentiated in vivo into pulmonary epithelium using three-dimensional reconstruction (deconvolution) of immunofluorescently labeled cryosections of mouse lungs. This will show whether donor MSC-derived cells are expressing markers characteristic of lung epithelial cells.
