Mechanobiology in Health and Disease brings together contributions from leading biologists, clinicians, physicists and engineers in one convenient volume, providing a unified source of information for researchers in this highly multidisciplinary area. Opening chapters provide essential background information on cell mechanotransduction and essential mechanobiology methods and techniques. Other sections focus on the study of mechanobiology in healthy systems, including bone, tendons, muscles, blood vessels, the heart and the skin, as well as mechanobiology studies of pregnancy. Final chapters address the nascent area of mechanobiology in disease, from the study of bone conditions, skin diseases and heart diseases to cancer. A discussion of future perspectives for research completes each chapter in the volume. 
This is a timely resource for both early-career and established researchers working on mechanobiology.




  • Provides an essential digest of primary research from many fields and disciplines in one convenient volume
  • Covers both experimental approaches and descriptions of mechanobiology problems from mathematical and numerical perspectives
  • Addresses the hot topic of mechanobiology in disease, a particularly dynamic field of frontier science
