Technologies for Regenerative Medicine

Abstract:
Columbia University is a major contributor to the NanoMedicine Center for Mechanical Biology, a multi-disciplinary initiative aimed at developing new technologies for regenerative medicine and treating human diseases that involve mechanical malfunction, such as cancer.

The ultimate goal of the NanoMedicine Center for Mechanical Biology is to create an understanding of cellular mechanical biology which, once grasped, could lead to a pioneering operations manual for cell mechanical function. Since many diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and immune disorders can originate from cell mechanical malfunction, this could provide important new technologies for treatments, i.e. a Cellular Repair Manual.
