About this book

The subject of Cell Mechanics and Cellular Engineering is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary subject based on the application of methods and principles from engineering and the life sciences to the study of cellular function, and the development of biological substitutes to restore cellular function. The application of mechanical principles to the study of growth dates back to Galileo and Hooke in the 17th century, but recent developments in laboratory techniques and computational methods have led to significant advances. This book presents a collection of extremely current articles all focussed on the broad goal of understanding the relationship between mechanical forces and cellular functions in living organisms. Cell Mechanics and Cellular Engineering will be of interest to students and researchers in biomechanics, bioengineering, biophysics, and biochemistry.
