What is PATLiSci
This proposed project deals with the development of cantilever array based methods for their application in different fields o you have more informations!
It has been shown recently that the stiffness of cancer cells affects the way they spread in the body (Cross, Nature Nanotech 2, 780 (2007)).
Equally important is the adhesion forces of cancer cells to other cells. The measurement of nanomechanical properties of cells as well as cell-cell interactions as a function of milieu parameters is thus of particular interest in cancer research. A related field of relevance is the understanding of inflammatory processes that lead to disregulated wound
