U-M researchers have devised a process that can grow hundreds of cultured cancer cell masses, called spheroids, from just a few tumor cells derived from a patient.
Fighting cancer with cancer: 3D cultured cells could drive precision therapy
“Labyrinth” chip could help monitor aggressive cancer stem cells
A breast cancer clinical trial relies on a hydrodynamic maze to capture cancer stem cells from patient blood.
Reading cancer’s chemical clues
A nanoparticle-assisted optical imaging technique could one day read the chemical makeup of a tumor.
‘Sister cell’ profiling aims to shut down cancer metastasis
Michigan engineers release individual cells from a specially-designed chip using laser pulses.
How precision medicine is improving prostate cancer treatment
New, statistically-derived guidelines could potentially save millions of prostate patients from painful and invasive follow-up treatments.
Are We Fighting Cancer Wrong?
Chemotherapy. Radiation. Surgery. Doctors go after the tumors that they can see.
