ICTR in the News: 3D Imaging and Computer Modeling Capture Breast Duct Development


The following article profiles work performed by ICTR researcher Andrew Ewald, Ph.D., professor of cell biology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a researcher at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Working with hundreds of time-lapse videos of mouse tissue, a team of biologists joined up with civil engineers to create what is believed to be the first 3D computer model to show precisely how the tiny tubes that funnel milk through the breasts of mammals form. A report on the model was published April 9 in Developmental Cell. The model employed science and engineering principles commonly […]
