  • Microsensors offer first look at whether cell mass affects growth rate

    A team University of Illinois researchers led by electrical and computer engineering and bioengineering professor Rashid Bashir (bottom left) have developed an array of microsensors to measure the relationship between cell mass and growth rate.
