Caption: Skin culture laboratory. View of a researcher, wearing protective clothing, examining the growth of artificial skin cells under a microscope. The sample being examined (at upper right) is a flask containing liquid culture medium which has been inoculated with human skin cells. Human skin is made up of two layers: a tough outer coating, the epidermis; and an inner layer of connective tissue, the dermis. Skin can be cultured by "seeding" epidermal cells onto a small sample of human dermis tissue. Synthetic skin's uses include treatment of severe burns, and in the testing of drugs & cosmetics. Photographed at the Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon, France.
