    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Magin is the principal investigator of the Bio-Inspired Pulmonary Engineering Laboratory at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus in the Division of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care Medicine and the Department of Bioengineering. She has extensive experience in the conception, development and translation of medical devices. Her laboratory develops bio-inspired, engineered cell culture platforms, that precisely and consistently recapitulate the extracellular microenvironment and complex 3D micro-architecture of lung tissue. These bioengineered lung models will provide a foundation for development of precision therapies and patient-specific tissue engineering.

    Unrestricted Grant: Pulmonary     (Chelsea M. Magin, PhD)Dec 31, 2017 - Nov 30, 2018
    American Thoracic Society Foundation
    Bio-inspired 3D Cell Culture Platforms for Improved Modeling of Lung Epithelium In Vitro
    Role Description: The goals of this project are to 1) consistently produce synthetic 3D templates that can be used to pattern primary lung cells within a well-defined hydrogel matrix that mimics healthy or fibrotic ECM to replicate alveolar structure, and 2) determine the contribution of extracellular matrix stiffness to the initiation of a profibrotic phenotype in alveolar epithelial cells and subsequent signaling in vitro.
    Role: PI

    Sponsored Research Agreement     (Chelsea M. Magin, PhD)Nov 1, 2017 - Oct 31, 2018
    Sharklet Technologies, Inc.
    Evaluation of micropatterned surfaces for minimizing percutaneous gastrostomy tube complications
    Role Description: The goal of this project is to test Sharklet micropatterns in both 2D and 3D apical cell migration models that will be developed and implemented in the Magin laboratory.
    Role: PI

    Seed Grant     (Chelsea M. Magin, PhD)Jun 1, 2016 - Jun 30, 2017
