Abstract

Aiming to harness the inherent immunosuppressive properties of allogenic mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which can be used to treat severe inflammation in the lungs. The team are seeking to identify therapies using small-molecules that could address patients experiencing severe Covid-19 inflammation in their lungs without the need for cell transplantation.
