Stem Cell Research, Lung Organoids & Cystic Fibrosis

Stem Cell Research, Lung Organoids & Cystic Fibrosis

January 19, 2021

Dr. Brigitte Gomperts, leads a lab at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA. Her research focuses on the role stem cells play in repairing and regenerating the lungs after injury; her lab was the first to use stem cells to create lung-like organoids that mimic the air sac structures of actual lungs that – among other things – are used for high-throughput drug screening, and which someday might lead to the generation of patient-specific transplantable lung tissue. CFRI endorses CA Proposition 14 to continue funding stem cell research. Dr. Gomperts’ work is an example of the vital research funded through the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine.

Greet Me Germ Free - The Update

January 19, 2021
In honor of National Handshake Day, CFRI’s CF Adult Advisory Committee is launching part two of their “Greet Me Germ Free” campaign to raise awareness of the hazards of hand shaking. Hand shaking is known to be a primary source for the transmission of disease, especially important in the times of COVID-19. In this podcast, members of the Committee talk about issues they’ve encountered with our hand-shaking culture, some ways they have found to work around it, and some fun alternatives to say hello.
