Key questions

  • How does tissue microenvironment affects the cancer progression?

  • How can we mimic the human body by recreating the physiological microenvironment in vitro (outside the body)?

  • What can we do to bring accurate laboratory testing to patient's bedside?

  • How can we better our technologies to bring personalized medicine to individuals, leap from medical knowledge based on ensemble empirical knowledge to evidenced-based personal history based medicine.

  • Think about solving unmet needs/problems out there in the real world.
