SENSORS AND MICROSYSTEMS FOR MECHANOBIOLOGY

The exercise of microsystems to make mechanobiological measurements which play a vital role in many cellular processes such as cell spreading, motility, differentiation and apoptosis. Understanding the basic mechanics of single cells, that delineates the bridge between cellular force generation or sensing and function. QCM microsystems and MEMS, due to their small size and excellent force/displacement resolution are ideal for sensing force and displacement in cellular level.

Therefore, my present work is being focused on characterize the beating rate of cardiomycytes, viscoelastic properties of cardiomycytes and biological materials by using QCM microsystems with tailored circuits. Since the QCM is operated as a resonator and having predominent thickness shear mode, it has been received significant attention of today’s mechanobiological research.
