About this book


"Methods in Pulmonary Research" presents a comprehensive review of methods used to study physiology and the cell biology of the lung. The book covers the entire range of techniques from those that require cell cultures to those using in vivo experimental models. Up-to-date techniques such as intravital microscopy are presented. Yet standard methods such as classical short circuit techniques used to study tracheal transport are fully covered. This book will be extremely useful for all who work in pulmonary research, yet need a practical guide to incorporate other established methods into their research programs. Thus the book will prove to be a valuable resource for cell biologists who wish to use organs in their research programs as well biological scientists who are moving their research programs into more cell related phenomena.
