Breakthrough Technology to Measure Rotational Motion of Cells
Mechanics plays a fundamental role in cell biology. Cells navigate these mechanical forces to explore their environments and sense the behaviour of surrounding living cells. The physical characteristics of a cell’s environment in turn impact cell functions. Therefore, understanding how cells interact with their environment provides crucial insights into cell biology and has wider implications in medicine, including disease diagnosis and cancer therapy. Researchers have developed numerous tools to study the interplay between cells and their 3D microenvironment.
