A 3D Bioengineered Model of Intestinal Immunity

Paul, Harry Theodore


  • Throughout the intestine, clumped in the area of the epithelium that covers the highly immunologic Peyer’s patches, there is a rare cell type that determines which pathogens should be passed on to Peyer’s patch lymphocytes. Known as Microfold, or “M” cells, these epithelial cells have unique recognition and phagocytosis functions like those of immune cells and are heavily implicated in current ... read more
