Abstract

Neurogenesis is critical to continuously replacie olfactory neurons but is impaired during chronic inflammatory rhinosinusitis. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Chen et al. (2019) describe the inflammation-induced switching of olfactory stem cells from a regenerative phenotype to one participating in immune defense; this process contributes to deficient replacement of olfactory sensory neurons.
