"Three-Dimensional Human Liver-Chip Emulating Pre-Metastatic Niche Formation by Breast Cancer-Derived Extracellular Vesicles"

Junyoung Kim et al.,  ACS Nano, 2020

The 3D microfluidic human liver-chip developed in this study demonstrates how breast cancer-derived extracellular vesicles induce the formation of a pre-metastatic niche, promoting the adhesion of circulating tumor cells to a distant organ such as the liver, enabling the investigation of cancer metastasis and a wide range of potential pharmacological therapies.

 

 

"A fidget spinner for the point-of-care diagnosis of urinary tract infection"

Issac Michael et al., Nature Biomedical Engineering, 2020

A fidget spinner inspired microfluidic chip allows highly sensitive and rapid diagnosis of urinary track infection (UTI) and antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) only with hand power

 

 

"Near-Field Electrospinning for Three-Dimensional Stacked Nanoarchitectures with High Aspect Ratios", 

 Yang-Seok Park, Junyoung Kim, et.al., Nano Letter,2019

Herein, we report on a direct-write 3D NFES technique to construct self-aligned, template-free, 3D stacked nanoarchitectures by simply adding salt to the polymer solution. Numerical simulations suggested that the electric field could be tuned to achieve self-aligned nanofibers by adjusting the conductivity of the polymer solution.
