Continuous two-dimensional Stretch monitoring of fresh tissue Biopsies

Project description

Continuous stretch monitoring in ex-vivo tissue biopsies undergoing drug screening

Mechanical tension and stresses are key factors associated with controling the growth and proliferation of tumoural cells and tissues. Monitoring these stresses would help us understand cancer progression and allow for testing the effectiveness of anticancer drugs. The goal of the EU-funded StretchBio project is to develop a label-free and compact nanosystem for monitoring and quantification of mechanical stresses in ex vivo tissue biopsies. The StretchBio approach builds on a two-dimensional force sensor based on a nanopillar array whose bending, caused by the mechanical forces exerted by the living tissue, will change the transmitted light through the array. This novel nanodevice will allow scientists to evaluate the changes of the tissues undergoing treatment with anticancer drugs for improved drug screening.
