The goal of mechanobiology is to understand how mechanical force and geometry interplay with biochemical activities in cellular functions. Form is linked to function and there is a dynamic feedback between mechanics and biochemistry that is critical for cellular functions from sub cellular activities to shaping whole organisms.

Cutting Edge Methods and Technology

With countless intracellular feedback mechanisms regulating each various function of the cell, developing methods to study these functions often requires new technologies and unique procedures. This topic will explore several of the methods commonly used in the field of mechanobiology.
