This week’s episode of Why Not Change the World? The RPI Podcast examines how the structure of something can make all the difference, whether that thing is a laboratory or a tumor.

Kristen Mills, assistant professor of mechanical, aerospace, and nuclear engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, discusses her leading work studying how the biomechanics of a tumor and its environment may contribute to how its cells grow and spread throughout the body.

James Malazita, assistant professor in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer, talks about how the design of a laboratory can influence the kind of information that comes out of it.
