Sep 2016: NIH grant awarded for OCT-based imaging of cell forces

We have received our first NIH grant, from the NIBIB, to develop OCT-based imaging of cell force dynamics during cancer cell migration in 3D environments.  This research, which is being undertaken in collaboration with the Reinhart-King Lab, aims to demonstrate OCT-based traction force microscopy for the study of single as well as collective behavior of cell populations.
