Developing state-of-the-art methods to study cell-cell interactions and chemotaxis

One of our goals is to develop assays that enable precise high resolution studies of the signals that in our bodies instruct cells to move. We have to this end developed several cell culture platform based on microfluidic technology that allow formation of stable molecular gradients. These systems can be used to study blood vessel formation in for example differentiating stem cell cultures. We now continue our efforts to develop new assays that are easy to use for the wider research community, to advance research on the roles of molecular instructive gradients in developmental biology and tumor biology in general. We also develop methods that allow the positioning, study and precise manipulation of small cell clusters. Finally, we have projects that aim to lower the cost by a 100-fold for labs that would like to start with live cell imaging but lack the necessary equipment.
