Barbara Driscoll's lab in the Saban Research Institute at Children's Hospital Los Angeles investigates the impact of aging and, in the case of younger individuals, premature aging, on lung health and function. We are particularly interested in how aging affects the ability of lung progenitor cells to resist disease and function in injury repair. We are also interested in determining how these cells interact with other types of cells, including stem cells, that exist within the lung or come into the lung from the circulatory system, and how this interaction can stimulate or impede the aging process and the repair of lung injury.
