BME 523 - Cell Biomechanics: Principles and Biological Processes

Course Title: 

Cell Biomechanics: Principles and Biological Processes

Course Description: 

This course will provide students an opportunity to learn about mechanical forces that develop in the human body and how they can influence cell functions in a range of biological processes from embryogenesis, wound healing, and regenerative medicine to pathological conditions such as cancer invasion. Examples of research methods for investigating cell biomechanics in various biological systems will be discussed. Permission of instructor is required.
