Glioma on a chip: Probing Glioma Cell Invasion and Gliomagenesis on a Multiplexed Chip

Project description

An in vitro 3D model of glioma

Gliomas are the most common primary brain tumours and emerge from the supporting tissue of the brain. However, the lack of appropriate disease models has hampered the testing of new drug candidates. Using a bottom-up engineering approach and microfluidics, the EU-funded GliomaChip project proposes to develop 3D micro-patterned cellular constructs that can be exploited to study various aspects of glioma biology, including migration and angiogenesis. The long-term plan is to construct an in vitro 3D glioma-on-a-chip model mimicking the complex in vivo microenvironment of glioma that can be used to test new drugs and improve the management of patients.
