We develop and apply cell mechanobiology approaches for cancer diagnosis and prognosis and for wound prevention and healing. Our main focus is on cancer research, understanding metastasis and developing patient-specific mechanobiology approaches to predict the likelihood for metastasis formation. We are currently working with cell lines and tumors from patients. In parallel, in the context of wounds, we are developing mechanobiology based tools and approaches to prevent wound formation and accelerate wound healing.
