Research to Help Unlock the Mystery of How Cancer Spreads

Bioengineering Professor Mark Niedre and Assistant Professor Chiara Bellini received a 5-year, $2.7M grant titled “Continuous, Non-Invasive Optical Monitoring of Circulating Tumor Cell-Mediated Metastasis in Awake Mice” from the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health. The project will develop a new instrument (“w-DiFC”) for optically detecting and counting rare circulating tumor cells continuously and non-invasively in awake, freely-moving mice.

Students found biomedical engineering group

Early in her aca­d­emic career as a mechan­ical engi­neering stu­dent, Sienna Magee was sit­ting around a camp­fire talking with another member of the Outing Club about her interest in bio­med­ical engi­neering. “I came to North­eastern in spite of the fact that there’s no major,” she said. This con­ver­sa­tion sparked a cas­cade of con­nec­tions that ulti­mately led Magee to sev­eral stu­dents across col­leges who shared her interest. […]
