Our body is home to more than thirty-seven trillion cells co-ordinates with other types of cells and finally organize into different body tissues and organs.

Robert Ros says, “A few years ago, the NCI initiated this challenge within the framework of the Physical Sciences in Oncology (PSOC) Network, and several labs in the U.S. and Europe were invited to participate.” Robert Ros is the researcher at ASU. He is also the director of ASU’s Center for Biological Physics as well as the faculty in Physics Department and the Biodesign Institute’s Center for Single Molecule Biophysics.

Robert Ros is an emerging science expert. He is entirely focused on the mechanical and physical forces of body cells. These cell forces are inclusive of cells rafting. The cells raft through the rapid currents of the blood circulating within the body system.

The research team included researchers from eight different global laboratories. The eight universities are inclusive of Arizona State University, University of Pennsylvania, Johns-Hopkins University, the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, the Technical University of Dresden, the National Cancer Institute, the University of Paris-Diderot, and Saarland University in Germany.

Robert Ros adds, “All labs received from NCI the same cells (known as MCF-7 breast cancer cells), and we agreed on similar conditions for the measurements. We obtained the measurements from a total of six techniques in eight different laboratories using the same breast cells from the same lot, cultured in the same medium from the same lot, all directly provided by the same tissue culture cell bank.”
