Mechanobiology

Mechanobiology is a discipline that aims to understand how mechanical force and cellular geometry interplay with biochemical activities to drive cellular functions. With individual cellular activities culminating to shape whole organisms, form is linked to function, and dynamic feedback mechanisms arise between mechanics and biochemistry.
