  • Influence of deformable substrates on macroscopic and microscopic phenomenon of tissue 

    Bhatnagar, Divya (The Graduate School, Stony Brook University: Stony Brook, NY., 1-Aug-12)
    One of the most important aspects by which cells adapt to their environment is their interaction with their extracellular matrix. The goal of this thesis is to design deformable substrates with controllable mechanical and ...
  • Using Biomechanics to study cell behavior 

    Chang, Chung-Chueh (The Graduate School, Stony Brook University: Stony Brook, NY., 1-Aug-12)
    To develop stem cells based regenerative therapies, more efficient scaffolds are needed. Here we demonstrate how polymeric elastomer scaffolds can be used to induce differentiation of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) through ...
