Development of approaches to study cancer and develop personalized therapies
The Zangle Lab applies the principles of fluid mechanics and mass transport to study transport in single cells using both established and emerging microscopy techniques. Current work focuses on the use of quantitative phase microscopy (QPM) to quantify mass distributions within single cells and multicellular clusters. The resulting measurements can be used to assess the total mass of, or the transport of mass within, individual cells.
