1er Coloquio de Doctorado

1er Coloquio de Doctorado:

Este viernes tenemos el primer coloquio de doctorado que será impartido por:

Helim Aranda-Espinoza
Associate Professor
Fischell Department of Bioengineering
University of Maryland
 
con titulo:
Mechanobiology: From cell mechanosensing to spinal cord injury.
 
Abstract: 
Mechanobiology studies how external forces affect cell and tissue mechanics and contribute to healthy or diseased states of the cell and/or tissue. We will explore how the stiffness of the substrate affects the migration of leukocytes and even its transmigration through the endothelium. At a larger scale, we will show how tension and temperature are important for the regeneration of injured spinal cords.
 
Lugar: Auditorio de Física
hora: 1:00 pm.
