Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry utilized in novel technique to map tumor cell signaling
A team from the University of Washington (WA, USA) has demonstrated the use of time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry for mapping tumor cell signals in pancreatic cancer mouse models.
Biomedical research is largely centered on making new discoveries as it relates to human health and disease. The ultimate goal is to understand how human biology works and when and why it goes awry. With a strong foundation on the mechanisms of health and disease, advances in diagnostics and therapeutic interventions can be generated bringing cures to recalcitrant diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative pathologies.
