Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Stewart (my second PhD graduate but my first BME!) for his dissertation, “Characterization of Tissue Mechanics and Resulting Fibrotic Cellular Processes.”
Dr. Andres Rubiano and (former) undergrad Carly Galitz were recently published in Tissue Engineering C: Methods describing the advantages and hazards of mechanical characterization by indentation. It’s part of a special edition dedicated to Biomechanics and Mechanobiology, and we were happy… Read More
Congrats to Dan and our collaborators from the Maden Lab: our paper on African Spiny Mouse cells is one of the Journal of Biomechanics’ featured articles!
We demonstrated that mechanics of the gut change in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and differ across species.
We are currently accepting applications for a Postdoc to start in January 2019. Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in a biomedical field, extensive experience with animals, excellent writing, management, and communication skills, and a record of success at the bench, of course!
In the Simmons Mechanobiology Lab, we seek to replicate organ systems in vitro in order to advance biomedicine. Our research ranges from design-heavy microfabrication projects to basic cell biology investigations. Take a look around our site and get inspired!
