GEM4 Summer School University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Objectives

To educate researchers and graduate students about the fundamentals of cell and molecular biomechanics, and to provide an intense learning experience, and to facilitate interactions among engineers, biologists and clinicians. The goals are to help train a new generation of researchers with in-depth knowledge of mechanics and biology and to help engineers and biologists apply biomechanical approaches in biomolecular, cellular, tissue-level, animalmodel studies. This year’s summer school focuses on enabling technologies. The summer school will also provide an environment for the participants to explore potential collaborations on topics of mutual interest.
