Dr. Brigitte Gomperts' research focuses on the role of adult stem cells in repair and regeneration of the lungs. The goal of her research is to understand the normal repair processes in the airway that recapitulate lung development. Studying these adult stem cells in repair and regeneration of the lungs may, therefore, also provide new insights into diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and bronchiolitis obliterans. The ultimate goal is to use this knowledge to develop novel targeted therapies and prevention strategies for lung diseases.


Co-sponsored by the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Cancer and the Eli & Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research
