In vitro models for investigating keratinocyte responses to ultraviolet B radiation

Fernandez, Tara L. (2013) In vitro models for investigating keratinocyte responses to ultraviolet B radiation. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis describes the use of 2- and 3-dimensional cell-based models for studying how skin cells respond to ultraviolet radiation. These methods were used to investigate skin damage and repair after exposure to radiation in the context of skin cancer development. Interactions between different skin cell types were demonstrated as being significant in protecting against ultraviolet radiation-induced skin damage. This has important implications in understanding how skin cancers occur, as well as in the development of new strategies to prevent and treat them.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
