A novel device for controlling D. discoideum movement with an electric field
Cells have been shown to respond to electric fields, moving in a process known as electrotaxis. This process has significant implications in human physiology, but devices that allow scientists to study electrotaxis are inadequate. The poster demonstrates the construction a device utilizing microfluidics to address current problems and serve as an easily adaptable platform for diverse future experiments. Dictyostelium discoideum is a useful model for human cells and is used to test the new technology.
