Tiny Traps Lure Cancer Cells for Diagnostics, Treatment Monitoring

Detecting cancer at its early stages remains a major challenge in oncology. Even monitoring the progression of cancer is difficult, but researchers at the University of Michigan have come up with a tiny implantable device that can draw cancer cells toward itself for gene expression analysis. The microscopic device is a biomaterial scaffold that is… Read More »

Algorithm can quickly ID cancer outcomes from radiology reports

Deep natural language processing can harness information from radiology reports in electronic health records to rapidly ascertain if a patient has cancer and shifts in the disease. EHRs hold a tremendous amount of information that can be used to optimize cancer care and drive cancer research. However, unless a cancer patient is in a clinical… Read More »
