Pezzulo, Comellas examine airway cell “memory” with new NIH grant

Alejandro A Pezzulo, MD, assistant professor in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Occupational Medicine, and Alejandro Comellas, MD, clinical professor in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Occupational Medicine, received a five-year, $2.8M R01 grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. With this funding, Pezzulo and Comellas will determine the mechanisms by which transient lung inflammation common in people with asthma induces changes in stem cells which then go on to affect long-term function of the epithelia that line the airways.
