Laboratory for Computational Cellular Mechanobiology

Padmini Rangamani

University of California, San Diego

Mission Statement

We are broadly interested in the interplay of cell shape, signaling, and mechanics. We use principles of mechanics coupled with signal transduction to model and identify principles underlying biological phenomena. 

Our goal is to provide insight into complex biological systems with rigorous application of engineering and physical sciences.
