Shane Scott Mechanical pressure of the cell environment
Micro Proposal (€2,000)

Cells receive external information through mechanical signals, such as contact with a neighbouring cell, that help guide their development. To investigate this process, known as "mechanotransduction", the Kiel working group mimics the natural cell environment. Their hydrogel scaffolds are both viscous and elastic, and aims to control both properties. In natural cell environments macro-molecules such as collagen create a similar effect. Scott wants to investigate the extent to which these viscoelastic properties of the cell environment influence mechanotransduction, and how they can be modified using macro-molecules.
