The next edition of Journal Club will be on March 1st, 2018 at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK live on our Facebook page.
And yes, we know it’s the February edition of the club and it’s airing in March, but we could not broadcast sooner due to things happening at Cooper Union beyond our control; we will do the next club a bit earlier to keep it in the right month and avoid confusion.
Anyway, the topic for the show will be a new publication by Dr. Maria Blasco demonstrating the reversal of pulmonary fibrosis in an excellent new mouse model of the disease. This is an important step forward for the potential treatment of fibrosis, as currently there are no effective cures for this disease.
