Your Airway Research Needs Physiologically
ATS 2020 Virtual Conference Exhibition
As pulmonary research progresses, you can stay up to date on the latest advances by listening to experts discuss their research, learning about new products/services, and connecting with peers online. Whether you are attending ATS 2020 Virtual from Aug 5 - 10 or just want to see what’s new in pulmonary research, explore this page for educational content and tools to help you model the human airway in vitro and study respiratory diseases.
Study COVID-19 with ALI Cultures
Studying how viruses infect the airway tissue tissues helps researchers understand how to intervene and treat infected patients. To date, the air-liquid interface (ALI) culture system has been used to study a wide range of pathogens, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Learn how and why researchers are using ALI cultures to study respiratory viral infections, including COVID-19.
Model Cystic Fibrosis Airways
Technological advances have enabled researchers to study cystic fibrosis (CF) using specialized in vitro cell culture models, such as ALI cultures of primary human airway epithelial cells. Learn more about studying CF with airway epithelial cells by exploring the resources below.
