The biological effect of ionizing radiation begins at the atomic scale and therefore impacts cellular processes. The knowledge of cell mechanics is required to understand cellular processes and functions, such as the movement of cells, and the development of tissue engineering in cancer therapy. Even though temperature plays a crucial role in many cellular processes, the impact of temperature changes on cell mechanics is not understood in great detail. Therefore the science of mechanics and biology aims to unravel the mechanism behind unexplored areas of cell structure and function.
This month Journal club will be presented by Dr. Kayode Dada from the Centre for Energy Research and Development, Ife, Nigeria. His talk will focus on the influence of temperature on cell mechanobiology.
The event is online and hosted on our zoom platform. Registration is free but necessary.
