Mechanics and Function of Organs, Tissues and Cells

 

The laboratory for the Mechanics and Function of Organs, Tissues and Cells

Welcome To Our Website!

Our research work focuses on the micro-to-macro relationship in the mechanical function of biological organs, tissues and cells. We are investigating the underlying morphological, mechanical, transport and physicochemical mechanisms, and their integration from the micro level into the overall macro behavior of tissue and organs.

Our studies are aimed at understanding and quantifying fundamental processes of normal and pathological function, as a basis for development of improved treatments strategies.
