Exploring the nuances of the tumor microenvironment
By Chris Woolston
Pulling together techniques and insights that span multiple scientific fields and academic departments, researchers from Cornell Engineering and Weill Cornell Medicine are taking an expansive look at cancer that goes beyond tumors and individual cells. Bioengineers, chemists and cancer biologists are teaming up to understand the physical conditions surrounding each cancer cell, also known as the tumor microenvironment. By exploring the nuances of the human body from cancer’s point of view, they’re hoping to uncover weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the disease that can inspire new approaches to treatment and prevention.
