Diseases of the intestine are a considerable source of human morbidity and mortality, and span disorders of absorption, inflammatory bowel diseases, cancer, and metabolism. Surprisingly, despite the wealth of investigations into intestinal physiology and pathophysiology, primary intestinal culture is essentially not utilized at all as an experimental tool. This current project seeks to address this notable deficiency through the development of three-dimensional scaffold-based systems for primary human intestinal culture.
