Professor Kamm's Microfluidic Assays Featured in Nature Protocols Journal
Professor Roger Kamm's recent work on microfluidic devices was featured in the June issue of the journal Nature Protocols.
The paper, titled "Microfluidic assay for simultaneous culture of multiple cell types on surfaces or within hydrogels," describes a microfluidic platform that allows for the study of cell survival, proliferation, migration, morphogenesis, and differentiation by enabling a replication of the in vivo microenvironment. The assay combines three-dimensional and two-dimensional cell culture in hydrogel-incorporating chambers between surface-accessible microchannels, allowing stimuli to be applied to multiple cell type interactions over distances of less than 1mm.
