How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My research focus is the development of 3D disease models for osteosarcoma using human-derived biomaterials as scaffolds to recapitulate tumor invasiveness ability and tumor-stromal cell crosstalk.

Field of study
To date, anticancer therapies with evidenced efficacy in preclinical models fail during clinical trials. The shortage of robust drug screening platforms that accurately predict patient's response underlie these misleading results. To provide a reliable platform for tumor drug discovery, we herein propose a relevant humanized 3D osteosarcoma (OS) mo...
Fundamental physiologic and pathologic phenomena such as wound healing and cancer metastasis are typically associated with the migration of cells through adjacent extracellular matrix. In recent years, advances in biomimetic materials have supported the progress in 3D cell culture and provided biomedical tools for the development of models to study...
