The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health, along with the Longfonds BREATH consortium convened a working group to review the field of lung regeneration and suggest avenues for future research. The meeting took place on May 22, 2019 at the American Thoracic Society 2019 conference in Dallas, Texas, USA, and brought together investigators studying lung development, adult stem cell biology, induced pluripotent stem cells, biomaterials and respiratory disease. The purpose of the working group was 1) to examine the present status of basic science approaches to tackling lung disease and promoting lung regeneration in patients and 2) to determine priorities for future research in the field.
