Dr. Leal-Egana was an invited speaker at SCIMAN in Costa Rica!.

During this presentation, Dr. Leal-Egana discussed how it might be possible to mimic the architecture of complex pathologies in vitro, such as cancer. This task can be addressed by mimicking the biophysical properties already described for in vivo tumors, at the nano- and micro-scale. Understanding and replicating the biophysical features of disease states could help the biomedical community design new strategies in the laboratory to fight diseases like cancer.
