Scientists combine 3D bioprinting and computer modeling to study cancer metastasis in blood vessels

Noble Horvath

Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc.Aug 26 2020 Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have paired 3D-printed, living human brain vasculature with advanced computational flow simulations to better understand tumor cell attachment to blood vessels, the first step in secondary tumor formation during cancer metastasis. The unique approach, developed with outside collaborators, […]
