Dr. Kotton is the David C. Seldin Professor of Medicine and the founding Director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Boston University and Boston Medical Center. His laboratory research is focused on developing new treatments for lung diseases through an improved understanding of lung stem cell biology. Dr. Kotton’s laboratory and Center have pioneered approaches for deriving lung lineages in vitro from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and correcting disease-causing mutations through gene editing these patient-specific cells. His Center champions an Open Source Biology approach to sharing the large, NIH-sponsored national lung disease-specific iPSC repository housed in his Center. In addition to his research and Center Director roles, Dr. Kotton is also an attending physician in the Medical Intensive Care Unit, the Pulmonary Consultation Service, the Alpha-1 Center, and the Pulmonary outpatient clinic, all at Boston Medical Center.
