Abstract

This paper reports the development of three dimensional (3-D) microfabricated silicon cell culture substrates comprised of star and circular microchambers, microfluidic networks, and channels with rough surfaces using a single-mask fabrication process [1]. The aim of creating such microstructures is to provide valuable data regarding growth, spreading, and deformation of normal and cancer cells on different surface topographies and roughness.
