Biomimetic Platform


This project is focused on utilizing our high-fidelity ex vivo organotypic 3D breast model to study the effects of implant shell on patient-derived BIA-ALCL (breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma) cells.

Breast Simulacra

This project demonstrated, for the first time, lipid transfer directly from a fat cell into a breast cancer cell.
