Cellular Biomechanics Mechanisms of Melanoma Tumor Cell Extravasation Jacob Knotts There are very important discoveries being made every day in the biomedical  engineering field. Perhaps some of the most important research that is being done and  some of the most interesting is cancer research. The Pennsylvania State University has  a laboratory that focuses specifically on the interaction between melanoma tumor cells  and white blood cells and the mechanics of tumor cell adhesion and extravasation. Before one can go on there are a few processes and terms that one should be  familiar with in order to fully familiarize oneself with tumor cell research. To begin with,  one must understand the circumstances that are required for cancer cells to migrate  and survive. Tumor migration is often referred to as metastasis. Motility and adhesion  are   two   requirements   for  cancer   metastasis.  Cancer   is   known   to   spread   primarily

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
