This session invites contributions in the area of cell mechanics. Topics include measurement of cellular mechanical properties, cytoskeletal mechanics, cellular response to mechanical cues and modulation of cell mechanical properties by external stimuli. Of interest, but not limited to, is the manner in which cells react to biomaterial-related properties, but of greater interest is whether or not these biomaterial properties can be engineered to control or guide cell behavior.
