Magneto-Mechanical System to Reproduce and Quantify Complex Strain Patterns in Biological Materials

Based on magneto-active polymers, we provide a non-invasive and real-time control methodology to impose complex mechanical forces on biological systems. The device is conceptualised to be suitable for any traditional microscope! See scheme:

PhD Positions at NJIT

We have Ph.D. positions in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) with a primary focus on the mechanobiology of cells and tissues. We are looking for candidates with a background in solid and fluid mechanics to work in a collaborative environment. Our research develops integrated computational and experimental tools to understand and harness the role of mechanics in physiological processes such as wound healing, and pathological processes such as fibrocontractile diseases and tumor progression.

PhD opening on Mechanics of Bio-adhesion and Mechanobiology @ University of British Columbia, Vancouver (BC, Canada) - Mechanical Engineering

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to work on Computational Solid Mechanics, with focus on Cell Adhesion and Mechanobiology. The project is in collaboration with experimental biologists and biophysicists located at UBC and other international laboratories. It will involve the use analytical tools in Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics (e.g. Statistical Mechanics), and computational tools such as Finite Element Analysis. The goal will be to derive important scaling laws to understand the mechanical behavior of Biological Cells under different processes such as Motility, Differentiation and Mitosis.

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.

A new book chapter of the role of the actin cytoskeleton in mechanosensation

We wrote a book chapter about the role of the actin cytoskeleton in mechanosensation. The book title is Mechanosensitivity and Mechanotransduction, edited by A, Kamkin and I. Kiseleva and published by Springer-Verlag, New York.". 

In this chapter, we try to integrate mechanics, materials science, biophysics and biology together to give a most updated view of this field. We also want to introduce the feedback loop concept to mechanicians who are interested in studying biological systems.

I attached the pdf version and the follwoing is the subtitles of the chapter.
