Cytoskeletal level

    Viscoelasticity
    Acto-myosin contractility

Cellular & tissue levels
    Viscoelasticity
    Mechano-sensing
    Mechanotransduction


 

A goal of our research is to understand the mechanical properties of cytoskeleton, cells, and tissues as well as to elucidate mechanotransduction by connecting mechanics of actin structures at subcellular scales with cellular-level and tissue-level mechanics that are relevant to understanding normal physiology and pathology.
