Title : Stijn De Langhe, PhD
First Name : Stijn
Middle Name :
Last Name : De Langhe, PhD
Position :
University : National Jewish Health
Proposal Title : "Role of Wnt and FGF Signaling in Alveolar Epithelial Regeneration After Bleomycin Injury"
Proposal Funder :
Dr. De Langhe is an Associate professor at National Jewish Health in Denver Colorado. He received his PhD in 2005 for his work on lung developmental biology under Dr. Saverio Bellusci. In 2007 he started his own lab at National Jewish Health. During this time his laboratory has focused on lung stem cell biology, lung development and regeneration after injury. His inquiries into the molecular mechanisms of lung development serve as a framework within which he seeks to identify ways to regenerate lungs that are suffering from devastating lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis. Dr. De Langhe's work has demonstrated that adult lung stem cells hijack the pathways important for lung development to respond to injury. However, his work has also shown that when deregulated these pathways can also drive disease progression. This latter process is very well documented in cancer and Dr. De Langhe will use the funds associated with the Albert Rose Established Investigator Award to study how these processes affect the progression of pulmonary fibrosis.

The Albert Rose Established Investigator Award Winners

Created to allow established investigators to explore novel, innovative areas of research, the Albert Rose Established Investigator Award provides critical support to the development of new projects, and enables the investigator to pursue additional funding through the National Institutes of Health or other agencies. Two $50,000 grants are awarded per annual cycle, disbursed over a two-year period.
