Bioengineers and Cancer Biologists develop a complex in vitro model of the human tumour - new Ideaslab video

6 September 2019

Bioengineers are trying to grow human organs, so could growing human tumours help us to understand the microenvironment in which they spread – and how the immune system might be persuaded to attack them? Frances Balkwill explains in this new Ideaslab video for the World Economic Forum how our research at ... [more]

Cells ‘walk’ on liquids a bit like geckos

19 February 2018

Researchers at Queen Mary University of London have discovered that cells can ‘walk’ on liquids a bit like the way geckos stick to other surfaces. Cells are typically grown on solid materials, such as tissue culture plastic, degradable polymers and bioceramics. It is thought that the strong mechanical properties of ... [more]
