Our 7th annual international symposium will focus on advances in the field of Mechanobiology that have resulted in the development of new types of pharmaceuticals, drug delivery systems, engineered tissues, and wearable therapeutic devices that leverage physical forces or target mechanical signaling pathways as a core part of their mechanism of action. Organized by Wyss Institute Core Faculty members Dave Mooney and Don Ingber, the day will include a number of distinguished speakers who will provide examples of how mechanics is being harnessed in ways that can transform the future of medicine.

Philip Gottlieb

Research Associate Professor, State University of New York at Buffalo
Dr. Philip Gottlieb received his Ph.D. from the organic chemistry department at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where he made peptide analogues to stimulate the phagocytosis of white blood cells.  He then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Colorado in Boulder, using nucleic acid analogues to study protein-DNA interactions. As a faculty member he continued and expanded the work to include RNA analogues and ribozymes. In... Read More →
