The latest ERS Monograph on Lung Stem Cells in Development, Health and Disease is now available. This Monograph provides information about the different classes of stem cells present in both the developing and adult lung: where they are found, how they function in homeostasis and pathologic conditions, the mechanisms that regulate their behaviour, and how they may be harnessed for therapeutic purposes. The book focuses on stem cells in the mouse and human lung but also includes the ferret as an increasingly important new model organism. Chapters also discuss how lung tissue, including endogenous stem cells, can be generated in vitro from pluripotent stem cell lines. Order your print copy at or visit to access the book online

As the data surrounding COVID-19 is evolving so quickly, chapters from the Monograph will first be hosted on FigShare for public comment. The chapters will then be put through ERS' standard peer review and revision process, ahead of publication in print and online.

About the ERS books

The ERS Monograph is the quarterly book series from the European Respiratory Society. Each Monograph covers a specific area of respiratory medicine, providing in-depth reviews that give clinicians at all levels a concise, comprehensive guide to symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. 

The ERS Handbooks are compact guides to broad areas of the respiratory field. Launched in 2010, the series now covers adult, paediatric and sleep respiratory medicine, and a companion volume of self-assessment questions is available.
