Summaries
Main Description
Mechanobiology ”the study of the effects of mechanical environments on the biological processes of cells ”has evolved from traditional biomechanics via the incorporation of strong elements of molecular and cell biology. Currently, a broad range of organ systems are being studied by surgeons, physicians, basic scientists, and engineers. These mechanobiologists aim to create new therapies and further biological understanding by quantifying the mechanical environment of cells and the molecular mechanisms of mechanically induced pathological conditions. To achieve these goals, investigators must be familiar with both the basic concepts of mechanics and the modern tools of cellular/molecular biology. Unfortunately, current literature contains numerous studies that misuse standard mechanical estimations and terminology, or fail to implement appropriate molecular analyses. Therefore, the Mechanobiology Handbooknot only presents cutting-edge research findings across various fields and organ systems, but also provides the elementary chapters on mechanics and molecular analysis techniques to encourage cross-field understanding and appropriate planning. Aided by the continuous advancement of research tools in both mechanics and biology more sophisticated experiments and analyses are possible, thus fueling the growth of the field of mechanobiology. Considering the complexity of the mechanics and the biology of the human body, most of the world of biomechanics remains to be studied. Since the field is still developing, the Mechanobiology Handbookdoes not force one unified theory, but brings out many different viewpoints and approaches to stimulate further research questions.
Main Description
At appropriate levels, mechanical stimuli are necessary for growth and maintenance of healthy tissues and organs. Mechanobiology examines effects of mechanical force stimuli on cellular biological functions. The past two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the level of research in mechaniobiology. Collecting the cutting-edge research findings from a diverse range of scientists, this volume, which presents basic materials in mechanics and cell biology, is a reference for those new to the field and also is designed to stimulate new ways of thinking in current mechanobiology researchers.
