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. 

Please contact Dr Bidan for registration. The course will consist of two lectures per week. The course may be online or in person. Information will follow.
