Mechanobiology – Exploring the Mechanics of Cell Behaviour – Professor Taher Saif and Dr Andrew W. Holle

biology, engineering and tech, health and medicine

Understanding how cells interact with the physical world around them is at the core of mechanobiology, a growing subfield connecting the arenas of cell biology and bioengineering. Two leading researchers, Professor Taher Saif and Dr Andrew Holle, with the support of an international body of scientists, are spearheading work in this field that aims to uncover how cells are impacted by their mechanical microenvironment in a physiologically relevant context.
