Congratulations to Paul's new publication: Hybrid microfluidics platform for studying electrotaxis of glioblastoma
Paul's work published in APL Bioengineering has been featured on AIP Scilight, see link here!
"Tsai et al demonstrated a hybrid microfluidic platform for studying glioblastoma electrotaxis. By combining the microfluidic system with a high-throughput machine learning approach for single cell tracking, the group observed how voltage-gated ion channels influence cell movements in two different models of glioblastoma, and charted the effects of the ion channels on cancer cell migration."
