Growing cells in 2D under static conditions has long been the gold standard of cell culture, despite this method not being representative of the complexin vivoenvironment. The use of animal models also has clear ethical and scientific limitations, and increasingly the 3Rs (replacement, refinement, reduction) in relation to animal models are being integrated into the modern-day scientific practice.

Focusing on new 3Din vitromethods now available to researchers, this book brings together examples of leading-edge work being conducted internationally for improvingin vitrocell culture methods, in particular the use of systems for enabling cell culture under laminar flow and the use of 3D scaffolds for providing cells with a structure which replicates the function of the extracellular matrix and encouraging interactions more akin to anin vivoenvironment.

John W. Haycockis director of the Centre for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering and associate director of the Kroto Research Institute, University of Sheffield, UK. He has a PhD in neuroscience from Newcastle University, UK. His key areas of work include scaffolds for nerve injury repair, 3D nerve models as alternatives for animal tes...
