Real-time and non-invasive measurements of cell mechanical behaviour with optical coherence phase microscopy

Lay summary

A new paper by Dawn Gillies (OPTIMA 2015) and colleagues was recently published on the use of hydrostatic pressure to monitor how 'squishy' cancer cells are compared with non-cancerous cells.

This was the inspiration for the Squishy Cancer public engagement with research project, piloted for the first time at the Botanic Gardens @ EXPLORATHON 2018. More information can be found here and here.
