This book describes methods of culturing epithelial cells so as to mimic accurately their behaviour in vivo, and the resulting model systems can be used in a wide range of research areas: pharmaceutics, pharmacology, toxocology, and cell biology. The culture technique involves growing cells ona porous substrate, so that the cells can receive nutrients by diffusion from the underlying layer, as they would in vivo.
Andrew J. Shaw is at University of London.
