Biomechanics in Oncology
بیومکانیک در سرطان شناسی
This book covers multi-scale biomechanics for oncology, ranging from cells and tissues to whole organ. Topics covered include, but not limited to, biomaterials in mechano-oncology, non-invasive imaging techniques, mechanical models of cell migration, cancer cell mechanics, and platelet-based drug delivery for cancer applications. This is an ideal book for graduate students, biomedical engineers, and researchers in the field of mechanobiology and oncology.
This book also:
Describes how mechanical properties of cancer cells, the extracellular matrix, tumor microenvironment and immuno-editing, and fluid flow dynamics contribute to tumor progression and the metastatic process
Provides the latest research on non-invasive imaging, including traction force microscopy and brillouin confocal microscopy
Includes insight into NCIs' role in supporting biomechanics in oncology research
Details how biomaterials in mechano-oncology can be used as a means to tune materials to study cancer
