A bronchioalveolar model for COVID-19

We are proud to present our contribution to the paper An Organoid‐derived Bronchioalveolar Model for SARS‐CoV‐2 Infection of Human Alveolar‐type II‐like Cells, published in EMBO Journal last week. COVID-19 patients can develop life-threatening acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), resulting from a cascade of events triggered by alveolar injury. However, representative in-vitro models to study SARS-CoV-2…
