Precision cut lung slices (PCLS) for probing mechanisms of pulmonary fibrosis

Original webinar date: January 17, 2023
Guest name: Claudia Loebel, MD-PhD​

Claudia Loebel, M.D./Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering and a Biological Sciences Scholar at the University of Michigan, US. She obtained her MD (2011) at the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in Germany and PhD (2016) at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), before completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Professor Jason Burdick at the University of Pennsylvania. She was awarded the Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) through the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at NIH for her work on synthetic lung tissue models to probe mechanisms of alveolar epithelial cell dysfunction. Her research involves the development of PCLS to probe mechanisms of early epithelial cell differentiation during lung injury and fibrosis.

In this webinar, Dr. Loebel will:

  • Describe the technical development of PCLS with a focus on epithelial cells
  • Explain the necessary culture conditions for optimal PCLS in pulmonary fibrosis research
  • Discuss the imaging and quantification of PCLS metrics in pulmonary fibrosis
