Offer Description

The project is focused on the use of human breast cancer cells adhering to 3D polymeric microscaffolds to model microtumours. The microtumours will be implanted in vivo in the respiratory membrane of embryonated avian eggs, in order to elicit a fibrotic foreign body reaction in the microtumours. The geometry of the 3D microscaffolds will be varied to condition the infiltration of the microtumours by the vessels and cells of the embryo, recreating an array of tumour microenvironments at various stages of fibrotic progression. We will predict mass transport of anticancer drugs by multiphysics modelling. This study model will be validated with approved and investigational anticancer drugs whose clinical outcome is known to depend on the level of tumour fibrosis.
