Predoctoral Training Program in Quantitative Mechanobiology

The Interdisciplinary Predoctoral Training Program in Quantitative Mechanobiology brings biologists, physicists, and engineers together to train predoctoral researchers in mechanobiology: the relationship between molecular events and mechanical forces in living systems. This training program supports Fellows from seven graduate degree programs (Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology; Mechanical Engineering; Bioengineering, Biomolecular Science and Engineering; Physics; Chemical Engineering; and Materials) and augments their PhD programs with training in quantitative bioscience methods, engineering models and devices, and multi-disciplinary cross-training to develop and apply quantitative approaches to problems in mechanobiology. Training includes both didactic and hands-on training in mechanobiology methods and concepts, and Fellows will be integrated in a strong community of interdisciplinary mechanobiology researchers through tailored networking, career training, and professional development activities. Trainees from diverse disciplines, backgrounds, and groups will be prepared to lead rigorous biomedical research programs and promote scientific advances in academia, industry, national labs, and technology and policy careers.
