NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A group at the University of Wisconsin, Madison recently received a five-year grant totaling approximately $1.5 million from the National Cancer Institute to develop a microfluidic chip that will combine circulating tumor cell purification, DNA and RNA extraction, and protein analysis.

The integrated platform, the result of a collaboration between biomedical engineers and oncologists at UW-Madison's Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research, is intended for clinical use, and could generate a "comprehensive snapshot" of CTC function at a molecular level.
