This project aims to develop and market a novel device that will significantly enhance research on metastasis and allow anti-metastatic drug screening via endpoint assays and large scale screens, and also be uniquely compatible with live imaging microscopy, which allows precise quantification of cancer cell metastatic behavior. This device will closely mimic several aspects of the tumor micro-environment far better than any existing assay or device found in the market or published literature.
