NIH U54 leads to creation of TriState SenNet Tissue Mapping Center

NIH U54 leads to creation of TriState SenNet Tissue Mapping Center

Led by Drs. Toren Finkel and Melanie Königshoff, the TriState SenNet TMC combines the expertise of faculty from Pitt, CMU, OSU, and URMC to develop a high-resolution map of the senescent cell population in the human lung and heart, define the physiological drivers of senescence, and provide a rational approach to understand the therapeutic potential of senolytic therapy.

Kambez H. Benam develops new robot to simulate vaping effects

To better understand potential damage that emerging vaping products may have on human lungs, Dr. Benam and his team have created a first-in-kind biologically inspired robotic system that quantitatively analyzes submicron and microparticles generated from electronic cigarettes in real-time while mimicking clinically relevant breathing and vaping topography exactly as happens in humans.
