David Mayerich, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the UH Cullen College, is part of a national group receiving funds from the National Institutes of Health to study breast cancer.

The group will develop a new device which will mimic organ-specific breast cancer metastasis patterns. The device will be tissue-engineered and will investigate what regulates organ specificity and why some cells undergo dormancy.
