KWF grant for Breast Cancer-on-Chip research

Monday, 12 July

The Dutch Cancer Foundation KWF granted a research project to Dik van Gent, Agnes Jager and Adriaan Houtsmuller (Erasmus MC) for further development of Cancer-on-Chip technologies, entitled: 'Prediction of Breast Cancer chemotherapy response by direct determination of chemosensitivity in breast tumor tissue'. Pieces of tumors derived from patients will be cultured in a microfluidics set-up that allows growth for one to two weeks. The project also aims to develop novel technology for analysis of (chemo)therapy responses using (live) cell microscopy and analysis of outflow media.
