“I am combining tissue engineering strategies with high-resolution imaging to design artificial tissues that mimic airway injury and repair.”
Leila Mostaço-Guidolin is looking to help find a cure for fibrosis. Fibrosis, which is the thickening and scarring of tissues, can occur in the lungs, liver, heart, and brain. It is a hallmark of several diseases including certain types of cancer and asthma. Her ambitious work will be able to design and look at lung tissue structures with an unprecedented level of detail and has the potential to eventually inform the development of new medications for asthma and other incurable fibrotic diseases.
