The Center for the Mechanics and Engineering of Cellular Systems is Established at CMU

Prof. Feinberg and the Regenerative Biomaterials and Therapeutics Group are founding members of the newly formed Center for the Mechanics and Engineering of Cellular Systems at CMU.

“The vision of the center is that a comprehensive understanding of the input and output of mechanical signals inside living cells, and between cells and the environment is essential in numerous areas. Significant improvements in the prevention and treatment of cancer, birth defects, and aging, as well as novel applications such as engineered tissues, nutrition and biological nanomachines, may be achieved by manipulating mechanical interactions in integrated biological systems at the molecular, cellular, and multi-cellular scales. Through leveraging the long-standing transdisciplinary culture of Carnegie Mellon University, the Center is built upon strengths in engineering, physics, life sciences, and computation across multiple departments and colleges.”
