Applications in Precision-cut Lung Slices (PCLS)

Ricardo Pineda, University of Pittsburgh

“In our lab we use human and mice precision-lung cut slices to model pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, and to study the mechanisms involved in lung regeneration and aging. We use human tissue samples to identify and investigate target signal pathways and novel therapeutic agents. We use the PCLS in experiments involving slice culture, immunofluorescence, single cell isolation for flow cytometry and RNA seq.”

Vikram Rao, Pliant Therapeutics

“I like to do lung and liver biology research particularly focusing on pharmacology and use of precision-cut tissue slices. Using the slices, we get better understand as to how our drugs can work on the tissue level. Instead of working with individual cell types, we can get an idea how drugs work on diseased tissue. These are cultured precision-cut liver slices from fibrotic liver tissue.”
