This volume details different laboratory techniques used to develop regenerative therapies that help treat corneal blindness. Chapters guide readers through methods and protocols on optimal cell culture conditions, gene-editing techniques, multiple types of scaffold for corneal regeneration, how to evaluate the success of these therapies, and cell and material characterization techniques. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Corneal Regeneration: Methods and Protocols aims to be useful for new and experienced laboratory researchers working on different aspects of corneal regeneration.
