Workshop — Cell and Tissue Mechanics: Modeling Meets Experiments
13 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
This interdisciplinary workshop combining discussions of theoretical modeling and experimental investigations, aims to further our understanding of the cell and tissue mechanics from the subcellular to the tissue scale with the emphasis on uniting them into a coherent picture. The research aimed at understanding how physical forces and changes in the mechanical properties of cells and tissues contribute to development, cell differentiation, physiology, diseases, etc. The workshop is planned to take place in the new BIRS station in Hangzhou, China in the fall 2020. It will bring together the best scientists from different backgrounds (e.g., cell biology, biomechanics, biophysics, biomathematics, etc.) to exchange ideas and discuss the latest results and future directions. We hope this workshop will also strengthen the academic exchanges and cooperation between Asia and the Western world. Moreover, we particularly encourage women scientists and the emerging generation of bright young scientists to participate.
This workshop will focus on the following topics: (1) Interplay of biochemical and mechanical aspects of cells. (2) Interactions between cells and their microenvironment. (3) Mechanical aspects of biological processes at the tissue level, such as morphogenesis, tissue growth, wound healing, and cancer progression.
