Molecular gradients play an important role in diverse physiological and pathological phenomena such as immune response, wound healing, development and cancer metastasis. In the past 10 years, engineering tools have been increasingly used to develop experimental platforms that capture important aspects of cellular microenvironments to allow quantitative and reproducible characterization of cellular response to gradients. This review discusses the emergence of microfluidics-based gradient… CONTINUE READING
