About this book

This book describes these exciting new developments, and presents experimental and computational findings that altogether describe the frontier of knowledge in cellular and biomolecular mechanics, and the biological implications, in health and disease. The book is written for bioengineers with interest in cellular mechanics, for biophysicists, biochemists, medical researchers and all other professionals with interest in how cells produce and respond to mechanical loads.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book comprises a number of articles by experts in the field of cellular and biomolecular mechanics. … In my opinion this book is an excellent start for any scientist who wants to enter this very challenging, intriguing and rapidly developing field of research. For the researcher, already active in this field, the book provides an outstanding overview of the state of the art of research in this area containing both extensive references and contributions from world leading experts within this field.” (Cees Oomens, Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, July, 2012)
