Analyzing Cells for Future Biomedical Devices

Yu-li Wang | Via Carnegie Mellon University | July 20, 2020

Yu-li Wang and his team are researching cell migration while using the technologies developed for potential applications in artificial organs and other devices. The team has been awarded a five-year research grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), one of the National Institutes of Health, to support this work.

“We are one of the world leaders in the field of mechanobiology, and we show that if you want to design an artificial material or organ to work properly, you need to pay attention to how living cells interact with materials,” said Wang, professor of biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. “You have to look not only at chemical interactions but also the mechanical properties… Continue reading.
