Peterson's Dissertation Published in Science Magazine

2010/2011 - Part of the PhD dissertation of Tom Petersen was published online in the June 25, 2010 issue of Science. The paper titled “Tissue-Engineered Lungs for in Vivo Implantation” describes work to reconstitute the rat lung from the organ extracellular matrix and added rat cells. The engineered lung exhibited mechanical properties similar to the normal lung and showed evidence of gas exchange. Coauthors on the paper are E. Calle, L. Zhao, E.J. Lee, L. Gui, M. Raredon, K.
