6 CDs in cell mechanics(mechanobiology)

There are six distinguished biophysicist in cell mechanics field (their research interests cover much broader areas) and the abbreviations of their first names are either C or D. They are Dr. David Weitz (Harvard U.), Dr. Christopher Chen (U. Penn.), Dr. Dennis Discher (U. Penn.), Dr. Denis Wirtz (JHU), Dr. Douglas Robinson (JHU), and Dr. Daniel Fletcher (U.C. Berkeley). These six scientists use both experimental and theoretical approaches to investigate the biological responses of proteins and cells to mechanical stimuli, such as forces and geometrical constraints. Their research extends from molecular scale to cellular level to tissue level.

Postdoc opportunity at Harvard in mechanics of soft materials for wearable devices

The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the School
of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University invites
applications for immediate openings for a joint postdoctoral fellow
position between the Whitesides Group (Prof. George Whitesides) and the
Harvard Biodesign Lab (Prof. Conor Walsh). The research is expected to
involve material science and mechanics of soft materials with a focus on
developing novel materials (e.g. actively variable stiffness, flexible
composites, etc) and fabrication approaches for the next generation of
wearable devices that can apply assistive forces to the wearer during

Call for special issue papers: Mechanics of cells, tissues, and biomaterials

The paramount role of mechanics in life has recently been the center of attention of many researchers. This special issue will be focusing on the role of mechanics in the life of cells and tissues and their interactions with biomaterials. Original research and review papers are solicited for review and publication in the journal Mechanical Sciences . Mechanical Sciences is an academic open-access journal sponsored by the Library of Delft University of Technology and The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Thanks to the generous financial support of The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, all manuscripts will be processed and published free of any charge.

ASME IMECE 2012, “Mechanics of Adhesion” symposium

Adhesion has long been an important issue for mechanics and
many other disciplines. Its influence spans macro-, micro-, nano- and molecular
scales. When size goes down, adhesion plays a more and more significant role.
Many important technologies attribute to adhesion, such as transfer printing
for advanced microfabrication, super adhesives inspired by gecko foot hairs,
and self-assembly. Adhesion also has strong implications on the behavior of
nanomaterials (such as nanotubes and graphenes) and biological systems (such as
cells). This minisymposium "Mechanics of Adhesion" is to provide a
