Univ. of Illinois researchers are using a new kind of microsensor to answer one of the weightiest questions in biology -- the relationship between cell mass and growth rate. The team, led by electrical and computer engineering and bioengineering professor Rashid Bashir, published its results in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. "It's merging micro-scale engineering and cell biology," says Bashir. "We can help advance biology by fabricating new tools that can be used to address important questions in cell biology, cancer research and tissue engineering." Source: Univ. of Illinois
