‘A novel ex-vivo approach to study lung injury and repair’

Lung Science Conference 2019, Estoril, Portugal

Sally Kim presented recent work on 8th March 2019 at the 17th European Respiratory Society Lung Science Conference: ‘Mechanisms of Acute Exacerbation of Respiratory Disease’. 

In an oral presentation titled ‘A novel ex-vivo approach to study lung injury and repair’, Sally presented the key highlights of the precision cut lung slice model our lab uses to study lung injury and repair. Our ex-vivo model received attention as a promising tool for multiple applications in pulmonary research. Sally won a bursary to attend this conference and as a bursary recipient, she was involved in the mentorship programme in which she received valuable mentorship critical for early career researchers. She was also given the opportunity to co-chair a session. She found the conference exceptionally supportive and worthwhile for early career and junior researchers.
