Body Mechanics

The MNSBL researchers try to understand a human body for building better bodies, one part at a time. Working across disciplines (e.g., mechanics, cellular and tissue biology, and nano/microelectromechanical systems (N/MEMS)), researchers are developing engineering solutions ranging from disease diagnostics to artificial organs. These advances hold the potential to improve quality of life for millions of people.

 Current Projects
1. Characterization of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) as potential diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of cancer
2. Modulation of 3D mechanophysical cues for cellular integration and tissue remodeling enhancement
