20.410 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 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 9-152.
