Slingshot Migration of Cells Captured in Tunable 3D Matrices



May 21, 2019

Human fibroblast cells (pink) in the process of slingshotting themselves forward in a 3D scaffold designed to mimic the conditions of the body (blue). Fibroblasts are the most common cells found in connective tissue. Biomedical engineering researchers at the University of Michigan documented this “slingshot migration,” which is five times faster than any other previously documented type of cell movement.
