Mechanobiology is a new interdisciplinary field of science, which focuses on how mechanics influences biological processes in living organisms. The mechanisms at stake involve different length scales: from the molecular, to the cellular, to the tissue level, and give rise to adaptive behavior like tissue softening or reinforcement depending on their mechanical loading. In this course, we will i) go through the key ingredients and concepts of mechanobiology in mammalian cells, ii) link them to tissue properties and their implication in different fields (e.g. tissue engineering, medicine, development) and iii) get an overview of the major techniques that generated the current knowledge in this field. 

The course will consist of two lectures per week:

Monday 10:30-12:00
Friday 10:30-12:00

starting Nov. 30, 2020 until the beginning of February.

Adjustments can be done in agreement with the participants. The course will be online, information to join will be given upon registration.
