Neuroscience and
Cellular Mechanics


The overall objective is to enhance the ability to address overarching challenges in the area of Mechanobiology of the Brain. Highly interdisciplinary in nature, the 2015 Summer Institute will offer faculty expertise from biology, engineering, materials science, medical science, and imaging through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab experiences.

Specific objectives include:

  • Educate researchers and graduate students about the fundamentals of neuroscience and cellular mechanics
  • Provide an intense learning experience and facilitate interaction among engineers, biologists, and clinicians
  • Train a new generation of researchers at the interaction of neuroscience and engineering
