Physiol.) and Tissue Engineering.

Research Interests

Dr. Panoskaltsis-Mortari’s laboratory research focuses upon bioengineering the lung using adult stem cells and decellularized whole lung scaffolds with the goal of creating autologous lungs for transplant. The Mortari lab also studies bone-marrow transplant-related lung injuries such as idiopathic pneumonia syndrome and obliterative bronchiolitis which are major complications causing morbidity and mortality post-BMT. She is also exploring methods of enhancing proper lung repair in several lung injury models using mesenchymal stromal cells, anti-fibrotic interventions and novel antioxidants.
