New 3D Cell Culture Method Developed with Help of BMS Professor Points to Personalized Cancer Therapies

Friday, October 30th, 2020 - Each cancer patient’s tumors have cells that look and act differently, making it difficult for scientists to determine treatments based on tumors grown from generic cell cultures in the lab. Now, thanks to a new 3D cell culture technique developed by a team of Purdue University researchers, including College of Veterinary Medicine faculty member Sophie Lelièvre, it may be possible to personalize treatment by understanding the contributions of different cell types in a tumor to the cancer’s behavior.
