Physical force plays an important role in the regulation of many living processes. Recent studies have demonstrated the significance of such forces, which complement chemical and biochemical cues, in the regulation of biological and pathological processes. These findings have birthed the exciting research field of “mechanobiology”, which has proven both academically curious as well as important for applications in drug discovery and therapeutic development. A unique and defining feature of such mechanical regulation is that it can directly react with the multi-layered architectures of living systems, ranging from nano-scale proteins, subcellular organelles, cells, tissues, organs to whole bodies. From this viewpoint, we have twice organized past "International Symposium on Nanoarchitectonics for Mechanobiology" meetings in 2015 and 2016, which helped explore the significance of new materials and methodologies in this emerging discipline.
This year, we will hold the third symposium in hopes of further converging biological advances and material synthesis for mechanobiology. Invited speakers represent expert scientists from both bio- and material-oriented backgrounds. We hope that all the participants will obtain fresh inspiration from the lectures and discussions.
18 oral talks and up to 40 posters.
