Peter Searson Receives Grant to Answer “Provocative Questions” in Cancer Research

June 19, 2012

With $316,513 in first-year funding, Peter Searson, the Joseph R. and Lynn C. Reynolds Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology, will develop a new method to study how cancer spreads, also known as “metastasis.” He proposes a device with an artificial blood vessel and other cellular components to study the spread of cancer. The “lab-on-a-chip” approach could replicate processes that occur in metastasis and provide a testing ground for experiments with a method easily reproduced by scientists. More >
