Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are a population of tissue resident adult progenitor cells which were originally identified in bone marrow, but have now been identified in many organs including the lung. Although their precise role in organ function remains incompletely defined, mounting evidence suggests that they are an important component of the parenchymal progenitor cell niche and orchestrate organ homeostasis and repair following injury. In this review we will outline what is known about MSC biology with particular emphasis on lung biology, and also highlight the therapeutic potential of MSC-based cell therapy.
