    Project Description

    Asthma is a serious and common condition, and for many sufferers there is only limited control and rarely resolution. We propose to produce new multipotent mesenchymal stromal cell products and use them to elucidate the mechanisms by which these cells inhibit allergic asthma. Understanding how these cells inhibit inflammation in the lungs will lead to the rational design of vaccine for respiratory diseases that currently have no cure.
