Welcome

The Mechanobiology & Soft Matter group belongs to the Interface and Complex Fluids Laboratory at the University of Mons. We seek to understand the basic physical principles underlying force transmission and elucidating how cell mechanical properties regulate cellular functions. Our experimental approach of cell mechanics takes advantage of physical chemistry of soft condensed matter and engineering sciences to address physiological questions at single-cell and tissue levels.
