CANCER ON A CHIP

SHARESHARESHARE
At present cancer research focuses on three major areas viz. cancer diagnostics, drugs development, and next-generation therapies. About 90% of the in-vitro research rely on traditional two-dimensional (2D) monolayer cell culture systems. 2D cell culture systems fail to accurately recapitulate the structure, function, physiology of living tissues, due to which the various studies such as assessing the efficacy of new drugs, study gene expressions, metabolic pathways, and cell proliferation do not correlate to actual In-vivo scenario.
