课程详情

This course provides fundamental understanding in the decisive roles of mechanical forces during development of tissues and organs, during remodelling following injury as well as in normal function. The course covers: mechanical properties of cytoskeletal polymers; mechanical properties of the cell membrane; roles of matrix mechanical properties on cell adhesion and function; effects of mechanical loading on cell cytoskeletal remodelling; mechanical testing of cell-populated matrices; cell migration behaviour in 3D matrices; roles of mechanics in cartilage development; roles of both cellular and external forces on tissue morphogenesis; roles of mechanical forces on tumour growth and cancer metastasis.
