Biomechanics and Mechanobiology

Biomechanics and mechanobiology are linked by the biological response to applied forces and strains. To understand the overall effect of load on biological systems, it is important to consider not only the deformation and shear rates which result from force application, but also the short and long-term biological responses. The Biomechanics and Mechanobiology track reflects this understanding and leverages the strong faculty research at Northeastern which is attempting to tie biomechanics to biological responses at multiple scales.
