|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.
Mehedi MASUD was born in Naogaon, Bangladesh on 1st January 1987. Currently, he is a PhD student in Information Engineering Department of Università Degli Studi di Brescia. His research activies are on experiment of cardiomyocyte’s beating rate, force, viscous properties of cells by using sensors and microsystems. Before, he received his masters degree from Politecnico di Milano from the Department of Electronics Engineering. He did his masters thesis in a state of art “ Semiconductor Devices & Integrated Circuits Lab” of Politecnico, in Polo Territoriale di Como. The topic of his thesis was “ Experimental characterizations of power supplies and filters for low noise powering of integrated circuits”. He did his Bachelor from Eastern University department of Electrical & Electronic Engg.
