Researchers profiled lung tissue from deceased COVID-19 patients and zoomed in on key regions and structures of interest.
Single-cell analysis of autopsy samples from COVID-19 patients shows how the lungs repeatedly tried, and failed, to repair themselves—according to a collaboration of researchers from several institutions and hospitals, including MIT and Harvard, and including an HST faculty member.
A leader in thermodynamics, heat transfer, cryopreservation of biomaterials, and energy conversion, Cravalho shaped thermodynamic and biomedical education at MIT, and was a past associate director of HST.
