This book is based on the Tissue Culture
Association Summer Course, which was
given at the University of Colorado School
of Medicine in 1958 under the direction of
the author. The course was started some
ten years ago as an intensive four weeks
of instruction in the structure and function
of living cells, techniques of cell and tissue culture, and interpretation of results.
It is designed for post doctoral workers
who plan to use cultured tissues in their
research or teaching. The number of
participants in the course each summer is
restricted to fifteen because of laboratory
limitations and for this reason, a concise
account such as that contained in this
book will be gratefully received by all the
many envious non-participants.
The nineteen chapters are arranged into
four parts as follows: I. Principles of cell
structure; 11. Preparation of materials;
111. Special techniques, and IV. Special
applications of cell and tissue culture
methods. There is a useful list of references at the end of each chapter, covering
both historical classics and the most recent
