Microfluidics is considered by researchers and clinicians as a disruptive technology in cancer research. The potential of microfluidics has already been well established regarding the analysis of circulating biomarkers. More recently its ability to unravel complex mechanisms of cancer cells invasion, proliferation and interaction with their microenvironment has been demonstrated. In this talk, Stéphanie Descroix presented how the combination of magnetic particles and microfluidics is valuable for circulating biomarkers analysis. Then, in a second part of her presentation, she introduced the new technologies developed to reproduce tumor microenvironment on chip.
