LION co-organizes International Mechanobiology Meeting

Thomas Schmidt, biophysics professor at LION, and Erik Danen from the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research organize an international meeting on mechanobiology in Amsterdam from March 22 to 24. Scientists in this field study how mechanical cues contribute to cell development, cell function and disease.

The Mechanobiology 2016 meeting gathers scientists from different disciplines, from physicists to clinical researchers, in order to discuss the latest insights in how cells sense and respond to mechanical signals. These insights should lead to a better understanding of diseases like fibrosis, heart failure and cancer.
