The force is strong within us: New study explores cell mechanics at work


(Arizona State University) An ASU research team focused on measuring the stiffness, bending, twisting and viscosity of individual cells — focused on a breast cancer cell line — using all of the most state-of-the art technology at their disposal. How both healthy and cancerous cells respond to this environment — and whether there are key differences that can be identified for future diagnostic applications was of keen interest to both the NCI and the physicists taking on the NCI's challenge.
