A research team with a global reach has developed a chip-like device that could make cancer remission permanent – and that’s just the start.
It’s like a random access memory chip – but instead of electrons, it’s moving cells.
That’s according to Duke University researcher Benjamin Yellen, an associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials sciences and lead on the project. Yellen, along with other researchers at both Duke University and Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea, say their cell-sorting system will revolutionize research.
“What we are doing is very similar to how a computer works,” he says. “You have an array of memory sites and you can write data to the memory by adding an electron.”
In this case, his team is trying to develop an array of cells that can be controlled with magnetic fields.
