Systems Analysis of Cellular Communication

The FRUITS lab is actively pursuing a highly interdisciplinary and emerging field of lab-on-a-chip, novel microfluidic tools for cell biology. Our current interests are in the development of novel devices to enhance the fundamental knowledge on the cell to cell communication in cancer, molecular interactions of dendritic cells and cancer cells.
