During this summer internship I studied cancerous fibroblasts to find differences in their cytoskeletons as opposed to healthy cells. To study the cells, we had two ways, either with glass or with hydrogels. Hydrogels resemble the better lung structure, so the results would be more accurate. I learned how to make hydrogels from scratch, transforming small pieces of pig lung into cell powder.
