Our latest paper, a collaboration with Dr. Amy Ryan at the University of Southern California, presents a closer look at the state-of-the-art of iPSC differentiation for pulmonary engineering, offer evidence supporting the power of biomaterials to improve stem cell differentiation, and discuss our perspective on the potential for tissue-informed biomaterials to transform pulmonary regenerative medicine.
The Magin Lab is thrilled to share our latest publication on hybrid-hydrogels for modeling fibrotic diseases in vitro. This international collaboration was led by Cassandra Petrou and includes colleagues from Lund University in Sweden. It was also featured on the cover of the Themed Issue: Emerging Investigators 2020 of the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.
We are thrilled to announce that the Magin Lab for Bio-Inspired Pulmonary Engineering is moving across the street to join the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Colorado, Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus! We look forward to setting up the lab in Bioscience 3 and continuing to collaborate with both Pediatrics and Medicine to

Cassandra L. Petrou successfully defended her Master’s thesis, titled, “Clickable, hybrid-hydrogels as tissue culture platforms for modeling fibrotic pulmonary diseases in vitro” in Bioengineering today!! She did an incredible job quickly switching over to a remote format. Stay tuned for updates on a publication coming soon!
Chelsea Magin, Assistant Professor of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care Medicine, Departments of Medicine and Bioengineering at CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, has been named a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program Award Winner. The NSF CAREER Program is the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award in support
Precision-cut lung slices are very thin slices of lung tissue that can be kept alive in culture outside of the body and studied as a model for a variety of chronic pulmonary diseases. Unfortunately, slices alone are only viable for about a week, which is not enough time to study disease mechanisms and treatment. The

By: Chelsea M. Magin, PhD Congratulations to the Magin Lab (Duncan Davis-Hall, Cassandra Petrou Chelsea Magin and Donald Campbell) for finishing the PH in the Park 5k together this weekend! This is an incredible event that brings together pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients, their families, friends and caregivers with physicians and researchers to raise awareness and
By: Emily Thomas, Gates Center Summer Intern My summer in the Magin Lab as a part of the Gates Summer Internship Program was absolutely spectacular! The mentorship provided by both the graduates students and Dr. Chelsea Magin was exceptional and most definitely helped me grow as a researcher. The Magin Lab members were always willing
