Development of a vascularized microfluidic 3D model of metastasis

Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
A multicellular microfluidic, similar to a chip-based device, 3D tumor model that contains a vascular network is described. This new model allows to study the vascular transport of nutrients and cells in the context of interactions between tumor microenvironments and spheroids of other organs and can be potentially used for drug testing.
