Course Description: Under development.

 

Spring 2017

ME-GY 7863 Special Topics I: Mechanobiology

Lectures: Thursdays 3:30-5:55pm

Credits: 3

Prerequisites: Mechanics of Materials, Cell and Molecular Biology

Office Hours: TBD, Rogers Hall 517G

Course Information: Permission from Instructor and Academic Advisor is required. Class material is available on NYU Classes.

Optional Textbook: Introduction to Cell Mechanics and Mechanobiology, Garland Science, 2012.

Course Description: The field of mechanobiology seeks to uncover mechanisms by which cells and tissues sense and adapt to their mechanical environment. This course covers principles and concepts in mechanobiology with emphasis on the musculoskeletal system; physical forces at cell and tissue levels; mechanisms of mechanotransduction; mechanoregulation of growth and development, homeostasis, adaptation, regeneration, and disease; and experimental methods in mechanobiology. Students will analyze seminal literature in the field, and develop and present an original research proposal based on current literature. This course is designed for 2nd year Masters students and PhD students.
