"Adaptive Architecture and Mechanoresponse of Epithelial Cells on a Torus", 

Sun-Min Yu, Bo Li, François Amblard, Steve Granick, Yoon-Kyoung Cho*, Biomaterials, 2020 

Our results collectively indicate the ability of epithelial cells to sense Gaussian curvatures and increase the expression of cytoplasmic and nucleus intermediate filaments as a protective measure against curvature-induced mechanical stress.



"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
