Longfonds have supported a study by LUMC where scientists are investigating how lung tissue reacts to the coronavirus. This research uses a so-called Long Fibrosis Chip, a small device that mimics a piece of living lung tissue, allowing the effects of the virus on patients to be simulated. The device will enable researchers to understand the specific effects of COVID-19, and whether it infects the respiratory tract differently than other (corona) viruses. The results will help scientists better understand the long-term impact of COVID-19 and its damage to lung tissue, as well as to test antiviral drugs.
