About this course
- Introduction to mechanobiology
- Mechanosensing and mechanotransduction
- Cell and matrix mechanics
- Cellular and mammalian gene engineering approaches
- Biophysical manipulation
- Measurement techniques
- Reconstructing cell–matrix interactions
For Student Mobility Alliance students: The course will be delivered fully on campus. The final exam is a written on campus exam.
Upon completion of the course, the student can:
- Explain the scientific concept and the multidisciplinary scope of mechanobiology, as well as its importance in human physiology and diseases.
- Specify the essential players in the interactions between the cell and its environment and understands their primary roles.
- Describe the mechanical response of cells and extracellular matrices and its structural underlying.
- Describe the various state-of-the-art engineering approaches to dissect the principles behind cell–matrix and cell-cell interactions.
- Independently identify and propose how dynamic cell–matrix and cell-cell interactions can be harnessed for rational design of biomaterials and to manipulate cell behavior in regenerative medicine applications.
