Tumor-LN-oC - Tumor and Lymph Node on Chip for cancer studies

Tumor-LN-oC proposes the development and validation of a TRL 5 tumor-lymph node-on-chip platform composed of 3D tissue models and microfluidic chips which will connect surgically removed human primary tumors and lymph node tissue (LN) from the same lung cancer patient. This will serve as a “biological twin” of the patient and will allow Tumor-LN-oC consortium to study the interaction of primary tumors with LNs for individual patients.

The developed Tumor-LN-oC platform will allow the monitoring of the LN metastasis process, the characterization of signalling ques facilitating LN metastasis and the identification of spectral and molecular signatures in metastasizing cells. This information could lead to novel diagnostic tools and therapeutic approaches. Moreover, the developed platform will serve as a preclinical setting for parallel testing of drugs for individual cancer lung cancer patients.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 953234, project Tumor-LN-oC.
