20.310 Molecular, Cellular, and Tissue Biomechanics
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.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-163.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
