March 17, 2008 – Bioengineering Professor Luke Lee and his lab group have developed a technique to quickly generate three-dimensional artificial tumours that could help improve anti-cancer drug testing. The “tumour factory” offers a better alternative to the flat cultured cells currently used to test new anticancer drugs.
