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.

David J. Mooney (Session Chair)

Wyss Institute, Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering & Applied Sciences
David J. Mooney is studying the mechanisms that enable cells to receive and react to chemical and mechanical signals, such as cell adhesion molecules and cyclic strains. These signals carry information that instruct cells to alter their behavior by changing their level of proliferation or area of specialization. Sometimes the message being sent is to promote tissue growth: sometimes it's to attack diseased cells. Dave is working to develop... Read More →
