Course on Cell Mechanics 2013

Spring 2013 / Institut Curie, Paris organized by Timo Betz

This course will bring together physicists and biologists that are leading experts in the field of cell mechanics to teach the audience typical approaches to understand the implications of cell mechanics in cell function. The aim is to have in one session a biologist and physicist talking about the same subject, thus pointing out the different points of view of each discipline, the specific questions that are asked by each discipline and the way the questions are addressed. While learning the state of the art science in cell mechanics explained by a team of international experts, the audience will see the cultural differences, and the synergy effects that arise from interdisciplinary cooperation.
