Engineering a cure for cancer

If we think of a cancer tumor as an engineering system that has a structure that grows and evolves both with physical and mechanical changes, it makes sense that we may be able to use engineering approaches to understand, target and treat cancerous tumors.

Today, researchers from The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute are teaming up with engineers and scientists from Ohio State’s colleges of Engineering and Arts and Sciences to look for novel approaches to prevention, diagnosis and new treatments for cancer.

The concept focuses on applying the tools, techniques and methods available to engineers to cancer research.
