3D Jet Writing Technique Provides Better Understanding of How Cancer Spreads

Reading Time: 3 minutes Researchers from Purdue University and University of Michigan have developed a new 3D jet writer that allows them to print high-resolution polymer as microtissues. These tiny tissue structures are able to facilitate cancer cell growth, allowing for improved drug development and testing. A team of researchers at Purdue University and University of Michigan have developed a […]

Fruit flies have been genetically modified to GLOW when they detect cancer

Reading Time: 2 minutes Using bioluminescence as a marker in genetic modification is routine for good reason: it provides a very clear visual confirmation that the desired gene has been target correctly. A new application involves modifying the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster so that their antennae light up in the presence of cancerous cells. The report comes from lead author Martin […]
