Title: Novel Tissue Mimetics that Help Evaluate Nanoparticle Delivery
Description: The focus of the Northeastern University's CCNE is to develop promising nanoparticles for lung, ovarian, and pancreatic cancer. In this image, researchers explored the phenotypic changes occurring in tumor cells using 3D spheroid models to evaluate nanoparticle-based delivery. The green fluorescense in this image comes from live cells while the red comes from dead cells and was obtained from a confocal fluorescense microscope.
