Mechanics of Disease and Development: Disease like cancer, asthma, and certain congenital malformations remain stubbornly resistant to traditional medical approaches. An understanding of the biomechanics of how cells and tissue interact with each other and with the environment are an emerging frontier for new approaches for controlling disease and understanding how congenital disease emerges during development.

In this Focus Group Meeting, speakers from the Castañeda (Biology) and Ross (Physics) groups will discuss the general theme of clustering and self-organization at the sub-cellular level. After the talks, we will work together as an audience with the panel of speakers to find commonality across projects. The meeting schedule will be:

  • 3 – 4 : Research talks
  • 4 – 4:30: Discussion
  • 4:30 – 5: Social

The meeting will be hybrid; please contact Jeremy Steinbacher for a Zoom link.
