Biomechanics is gaining relevance as complementary discipline to structural and cellular biology. The response of cells to mechanical stimuli determines cell type and function, while the spatial distribution of mechanical forces within the cells is crucial to understand cell activity. The experimental methodologies to approach cell mechanics are diverse but either they are effective in few cases or they rule out the innate cell complexity. In this regard, we have developed a simple scanning… CONTINUE READING
