2.798[J] Molecular, Cellular, and Tissue Biomechanics


Class Info

Develops and applies scaling laws and the methods of continuum mechanics to biomechanical phenomena over a range of length scales. Topics include structure of tissues and the molecular basis for macroscopic properties; chemical and electrical effects on mechanical behavior; cell mechanics, motility and adhesion; biomembranes; biomolecular mechanics and molecular motors. Experimental methods for probing structures at the tissue, cellular, and molecular levels.

This class has 2.002, 2.006, 6.013, 10.301, and 10.302 as prerequisites.

2.798[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by R. D. Kamm and K. Van Vliet.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
