Core B Skin Tissue Slide

The Skin Tissue Engineering and Morphology (STEM) Core, formerly known as the Skin Tissue Engineering Core and the Morphology and Phenotyping Core, is lead by Director Kathleen J. Green, PhD and co-directed by Associate Director Bethany E. Perez-White, PhD. The Skin Tissue Engineering Core facilitates fundamental research in skin biology by providing technological expertise and resources to support the culture of normal human and mouse epidermal keratinocytes, primary melanocyte and dermal fibroblast cultures, as well as co-cultured skin cell 3-D models. The Skin Tissue Engineering Core helps foster new collaborations among groups with the common goal of understanding the biology of skin cells.
