Cell culture has progressed to the point where cells can be grown into tissue-like structures in vitro, but these tissues often bear little resemblance to the same tissue in a living organism. 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, toxicology, and cell biology. Written by an international panel of researchers, the book details the methods used to reconstruct epithelia in vitro, the procedures used to characterise these model systems, and the research applications for which these cultures are becoming so important.
