November 30, 2023 | Research paper on cell transport is published in Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering
Our latest paper presents a systematic, large-scale computational study assessing cancer cell transit through complex a 3D geometry. We show that small variations in cellular properties akin to natural heterogeneity found across cell populations or cell lines can lead to significant differences in transit and flow force exposure.
Junyu Nan and Sayan Roychowdhury's research article entitled "Investigating the Influence of Heterogeneity Within Cell Types on Microvessel Network Transport" was published in Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering this week. This work highlights the importance of considering cell heterogeneity in biophysical studies. It suggests that slight variations in cellular characteristics (e.g., radii or stiffness) can impact the fluid conditions the cell is exposed to and subsequently alter transport.
