Topic

Mechanical properties have a key role in biological processes. At the interface between biology, physics, and mechanics the school will survey recent advances and the emerging techniques able to probe mechanical properties of biological material. Combining lectures, application talks and hands-on training, the school will introduce the topic at different length scales, from molecular and sub-cellular approaches (Atomic Force Microscopy, Acoustic Force Spectroscopy), to single cells (Brillouin microspectroscopy, MEMS) also extending towards multicellular organization and tissues (nanoindentation, ultrasonic micro-elastography). Theoretical lessons will be complemented with in silico tutorials (image and data analysis) and experimental activities.
