Epithelial Cell Biology Core (BCH)

Directors: Alper, Seth, M.D., Ph.D.; Snapper, Scott B., M.D., Ph.D.


Provides technologies and resources required for studies on polarized epithelial cells that line mucosal surfaces. We provide specialized epithelial cell culture and gene manipulation services, customized materials and instrumentation, expert know-how, and training to facilitate structural and functional studies on polarized epithelial cell culture systems or mucosal intestinal tissue in situ.
