Enhancing the ability of the lungs to regenerate following injury could revolutionize the treatment of a wide range of different diseases. In this issue, Kumar et al. (2011) and Ding et al. (2011) dissect the cellular and molecular mechanisms of murine lung regeneration following injury and provide insights into the basic biology of the organ with implications for development of future therapeutic approaches.
