Development of a cell culture system for dynamically controlling cell motility

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

We report a method for controlling the pattern of permissible cell migration and proliferation on a substrate in time and space. Using this method, a confluent monolayer of cells that is confined within a defined region is released into a neighboring region. Incorporated into the method is an electrochemical technique termed electrochemical bio-lithography that uses a scanning microelectrode to draw regions on the surface of the system that thereafter can support cell migration and growth.
