3.053[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 2.370, 2.772J, 18.03, and 3.016 as prerequisites.

3.053[J] will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by M. Bathe.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
