Growing 3D skin in a dish
From Eleanor Roger on April 13th, 2021
Jennifer Shelley, a PhD student in the Davidson Lab at the Centre for Inflammation Research, is using a new innovative technique to grow skin cells into a 3D structure. She hopes to use this to develop new treatments for Atopic Dermatitis, the most common form of eczema.
Jennifer explains this technique, and its benefits over traditional skin models, by comparing your skin to a brick wall.
