Nanoengineering for Mechanobiology

Mar 26, 2017 08:00 PM to Mar 29, 2017 01:00 PM (Europe/Zurich)

Camogli Genova, Italy

Get informed about our innovative FluidFM technology

Welcome to discuss novel nanotechnology tools and their application to the study of mechanical forces in biological systems. The dynamics of cells and multicellular systems has recently shown striking analogies with physical systems of inert particles. For example, physical models describing the glass transition of amorphous materials can be adapted to capture complex behaviors of cell collectives. The ability of these models to predict emerging cellular activities, such as collective motions, tissue invasion or degeneration is among the exciting developments of this research.

Designing, developing, and implementing dedicated nanotechnologies for the manipulation of complex cellular system will be key for the future unravelling of fundamental mechanisms in mechanobiology.

The 2017 edition of the Symposium will include a topical workshop on Mechanobiological Modelling, organized in the framework of the European ERC Nichoid project.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the booth of Schaefer-Tech as well as to the presentations of Dr. Tomaso Zambelli (ETH Zürich) and Dr. Pablo Dörig (Manager Cytosurge).
