New Technology Designed to Reduce Mortality Rates in Cancer Patients
from UConn Today
A pair of Ph.D. students at the University of Connecticut are developing a new technology to improve the efficiency of cancer treatment. They hope their innovation could someday significantly reduce mortality rates in cancer patients. Armin Tahmasbi Rad and Leila Daneshmandi, both from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, have developed Encapsulate, an automated tumor-on-a-chip system that takes a patient's tumor cells and grows them outside of the body to test different cancer treatments.
