ChE Professor Eno Ebong Presents Invited Talk on “Biomechanics of Vascular Disease" at Tufts University
On February 25, 2016 ChE Assistant Professor Eno Ebong recently presented an invited talk on “Biomechanics of Vascular Disease" at Tufts University in Medford, MA.
Professor Ebong's talk was sponsored by the School of Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her research group combines and applies chemical engineering, physics, live biological imaging, molecular biology, and pathology approaches to study mechanobiology. Mechanobiology is the process by which mammalian cells convert forces into biological responses. In the blood vessels , mechanobiology can prevent or promote atherosclerotic plaque growth—a pre¬cursor to heart attack and other serious conditions.
