Brief description While allergies are very common, affecting ~40% of the population in Western countries, only a proportion of allergic people develop asthma, highlighting the importance of cell specific mechanisms that contribute to the disease. We will address how the structure and function of cells that line the airways, called epithelial cells contribute to asthma. We believe that in asthma, certain types of epithelial cells do not go through normal stages of development and differentiation and remain immature.
