A team of NUS researchers from the Departments of Bioengineering and Orthopaedic Surgery has developed a highly realistic three-dimensional (3-D) tumour model. As it replicates the conditions in the body, it is able to track the effectiveness and progress of drug therapy. Their model has the potential to be a more effective method for studying tumours than in-vitro and even in-vivo methods.
