Corneal strip grown in the laboratory. It has been cultured from human epithelial cells that line the cornea, the outer shell of the eyeball. When cultured under the correct conditions, these cells form strips that can be used in the treatment of eye disorders. This research was developed at the IDI dermatology institute, Pomezia, Italy, under the direction of professor Michele de Luca.
