Abstract


In vitro cell culture models are extensively used for cancer research and cancer drug development. Unlike traditional cell culture methods which can only create simple cell culture conditions, microfluidics allow for the creations of more complex in-vitro cell culture models to mimic tumor microenvironments. This mini-review highlights some of the most promising applications of microfluidic techniques in creating tumor-mimicking in-vitro cell culture models for cancer research.
