Interstitium-on-a-chip to explore its role in cancer metastasis

Project description

A biomimetic device for studying metastasis

Metastasis is one of the hallmarks of cancer, and it is characterised by the migration of tumour cells to distant sites through the circulatory and the lymphatic systems. The key objective of the EU-funded ICE-METs project is to develop a microfluidics platform capable of monitoring the migration and proliferation of cancer cells during metastasis. The device under development has been engineered using biomimetic materials, and it offers the possibility to be used for screening and for developing effective chemotherapy drugs, with obvious benefits for patients and for society in general.
