VI CNIC Conference “Mechanical Forces in Physiology and Disease”
CNIC, Madrid (Spain), November 4th – 5th 2016
DEADLINES: pre-registration September 18th 2016.
Inscription is free, and there are 3 travel bursaries available for SBE members.
This CNIC conference will create an exciting forum to exchange ideas in basic and translational research. To foster discussion and build bridges between different experimental approaches, highly complementary perspectives will be presented in the same session. This conference will seed productive collaborative efforts to tackle key unknowns in the way mechanical forces influence biology and vice versa.
Mechanical forces are major determinants of the development, physiology and diseases of the cardiovascular system. In fact, mechanical forces are broadly important for many aspects of structure and function of living organisms. Mechanobiology is currently a major area of research with many new findings reported every year and exciting opportunities for novel discoveries. Furthermore, Mechanobiology is a highly interdisciplinary field with the potential for integration of physical, engineering, biological and medical approaches to achieve both a fuller understanding of the basic science and translation into clinical advances.
