Timeline of the rabbit experiments. Pups were delivered on either day 28 or day 31. For each gestational age pups were harvested (n = 10–15) immediately after birth, before the first breath: 28F and 31F. All other pups (n = 15–25) were hand reared and harvested on day 4 for the term pups (T) and day 7 for the preterm pups (P; same corrected age). A subset of pups underwent microCT and dark field imaging on day 0, 2 and 4 for terms and on day 0, 3, 5 and 7 for preterms
