Using almost fully automated processes, researchers at our laboratory have designed a 3D microenvironment in which cells can form a microtumor-like tissue. They showed that the biomimetic film they developed can mimic the biophysical conditions of the tumor microenvironment, including stiffness and the delivery of adhesion proteins and growth factors. Their work will open up perspectives for drug testing on mini-tumors in the context of personalized medicine.
