MECHANOBIOLOGY AND SOFT MATERIALS LAB

Mechanobiology and Soft Material Laboratory at Yonsei University seek to understand how mechanical environments play a role in determining structures and functions of biological systems such as cells and tissues.

Our research interests primarily lies in interdisciplinary mechanobiology at the multiscales, including protein-protein binding, cell’s response to mechanical stimulation, cell-cell coupling, cell-ECM interactions. Principles revealed from these studies are applied to design biomechanical devices which are useful in tissue engineering, drug delivery, bio-inspired robot, and biosensors.
