ADASRI, External Collaborators Awarded $3.5M Grant to Map Cells in Pediatric Respiratory Tissues

The American Dental Association Science & Research Institute, together with other U.S. and international collaborators, has been awarded a three-year, $3.5 million grant to create a cell atlas of the nose, mouth and airways from birth through adolescence.

The research team received the grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative as part of a $33 million announcement supporting groups of researchers and pediatricians as they seek to better understand, prevent and treat childhood diseases. The research funded by these grants will generate healthy, single-cell reference data from pediatric tissue samples for the Human Cell Atlas, an international consortium that aims to map every cell type in the human body.
