How our lungs regenerate after inhaling airborne particulates and microplastics

Polluntants inhaled with ambient air are obviously harmful to our lungs and immune systems. The degree to which they damage small airways and the regenerative potential of respiratory epithelium exposed to contaminants are the key research objective in a project led by Magdalena Paplińska-Goryca, Doctor habilitatus of Medicine, from the Chair and Department of Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases and Allergy of the University Clinical Center of the MUW.
