The Skin Tissue Engineering Core, formerly known as the Keratinocyte Core, is lead by Director, Bethany E. Perez-White, PhD, and co-directed by Associate Director Kathleen J. Green, PhD, with Advisor John A. Kessler, MD. 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.
