Using flow to treat disease.

Targeting cancer at the tissue level.

Once we know what's wrong in the tumor microenvironment, we can target nanoparticle therapeutics to the tumor and fix it. Diagnostic tools for assessing the microenvironment without need for tissue samples can close the loop on our personalized microenvironment therapy.

Patient-specific models of cancer

Predicting therapeutic response

one patient at a time

Therapeutic selection is still poorly defined for most cancers. By developing patient-derived and designed systems in which to test therapeutics before they're given to the patient, we help oncologists make the best decisions.
