Outline

This research aims to elucidate mechanisms of cancer metastasis using artificial hyper-nanospace. The artificial hyper-nanospace allows researchers to realize quantitative analysis of exosomes, which is a carrier of pro-tumorigenic factors from cancer to normal cells. The artificial hyper-nanospace is defined as a nanospace having “aimed size and spacing” of “aimed materials or surfaces” on “aimed spatial position” of microchannels. Finally, the artificial hyper-nanospace would contribute to elucidation of the mechanisms of cancer metastasis via identification of specific exosomes.
