Researchers grow mini breast-in-a-dish, provide breakthrough in breast cancer proliferation.


A research group from Helmholtz Zentrum München has developed an assay whereby mini-breasts in-a-dish can be grown, with cultured human breast epithelial cells rebuilt into the three-dimensional tissue architecture of the mammary gland. For this purpose, a transparent gel is used in which cells divide and spread, similar to the developing mammary gland during puberty. Specifically, cells divide and generate hollow
