Cellular mechanotransduction is the process by which cells receive incoming signals and translates those signals into functional outputs via biochemical pathways. The signaling mechanisms of tissue plasticity in humans and the associated pathways of cellular mechanotransduction are not fully understood, to that end, we are currently investigating methods to improve our understanding of the ways that physical forces and changes in cell and tissue mechanics contribute to development and disease.
