Hawkins and colleagues report a directed differentiation protocol enabling the derivation of airway basal cells (“iBCs”) from human iPSCs. iBCs recapitulate hallmark stem cell properties of primary basal cells, including self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation, thus enabling modeling of airway diseases in vitro and repopulation of tracheal xenografts in vivo.
