Reynolds Lab

The main focus of the Reynolds Lab involves elucidating the mechanisms involved in airway epithelial tissue repair using mouse models and human cell cultures to pave the way for the eventual use of human tissue stem cell therapy to treat cystic fibrosis and other forms of chronic lung disease.

Susan Reynolds
Principal Investigator

Dr. Reynolds and her lab conduct research focused on tissue stem cells that maintain the conducting airway epithelium. Her previous work identified a basal cell subtype that functioned as a tissue stem cell in mice, and her current research translates these findings to human airways and seeks to use the tissue stem cell as therapy for lung diseases, including Cystic Fibrosis.
