Researchers reveal how cancer cells escape from tumors and spread

A team led by asso­ciate pro­fessor Anand Astha­giri explores the bio­physics behind the spread of breast cancer, pro­viding hope for future treat­ments and early diagnosis.

March 13, 2012 - Anand Asthagiri, associate professor of chemical engineering, has developed a method for driving cells from point a to point b with more precision than previously available.  “We are excited by this because it opens two very interesting avenues of opportunity," says Asthagiri.  "One avenue is to learn more about the fundamentals of how cells move and exploit it. The other exciting possibility is on the application side. Could we use this to send some cells one way and other types of cells another?”

When smaller is better

Assis­tant pro­fessor of phar­ma­ceu­tical sci­ences Tania Konry has devel­oped a system that effi­ciently tests for a wide range of bio­log­ical spec­i­mens. Whether you’re looking for com­plex cancer cell bio­markers in a sample or simple bac­teria in drinking water, the system costs sig­nif­i­cantly less than stan­dard approaches and spits out results in a frac­tion of the time.
