Efficient Derivation of Functional Human Airway Epithelium from Pluripotent Stem Cells via Temporal Regulation of Wnt Signaling

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Kotton and colleagues show that carefully timed regulation of Wnt signaling can direct human pluripotent cells to differentiate rapidly into functional airway epithelial organoids with many potential applications in disease modeling, drug screening, and precision medicine, and for diseases such as cystic fibrosis.
