Soft Tissue Research: Experiments, Theory, and Computations by Hokies


Research in the STRETCH Lab focuses on characterizing the mechanical properties of biological systems ranging from cellular components to tissues, with special emphasis on the development of new mathematical models and experimental methods. Although our research interests are diverse and continuously evolve over time, the common thread that runs through much of our work is our genuine passion in advancing fundamental and mechanistic knowledge of biological systems. This knowledge is crucial for the development of effective interventions to prevent and treat illness and disability.
