Introduction:

This special seminar which will introduce advanced Master’s students into topics connected with Mechanobiology. We will discuss the scientific and technological foundations of mechanobiology and also cover recent research topics. Each student prepares a 30 min talk on one of the topics listed below, the presentation will take place in a one-day workshop in January.

A first meeting will take place on Monday, 21 October 14:00 at the Gaub Chair. Please write magnus.bauer@lmu.de in order to register for the seminar.
