  3. Illinois BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2011: In vitro Cancer Metastasis Driven by Elasticity of Micro-environment

    27 Oct 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Xin Tang

    Cancer deaths are primarily caused by metastases, not by the parent tumor. However, the physical-chemical mechanisms and parameters within the cellular micro-environment that initiate the onset of metastasis, are not understood. Here we show that human colon carcinoma (HCT-8) cells can exhibit a...
