I have 40 years of experience in rodent and human keratinocyte culture and have a large cell line panel representing all the stages of oral cancer with matched cancer-associated fibroblasts. The keratinocytes are extensively characterised for driver mutations, gene copy number alterations and transcriptomics. We have published extensively on this and reviewed some of it in Nature Reviews in Cancer. In addition, I have extensive experience in myoblast, adipocyte and atsrocyte culture and the field of cellualr senescence.
