"Immature dendritic cells navigate microscopic mazes to find tumor cells", Lab Chip, 2019DOI: 10.1021/acsami.8b08778 

We find imposing physical constraints in the cell migration tracks in the geometry and dimensions modulates the directional persistence of dendritic cells. A delicate balance between chemotactic cues and the physical confinements reveals subtle chemotactic differences of dendritic cells in cancer vs. normal cell surroundings even inside a complex maze.
