Impact loading and functional tissue engineering of articular cartilage
This thesis presents two advances for alleviating the problem of articular cartilage degeneration: mitigating degradative changes that follow mechanically induced injuries and growing functional neo-cartilage for diseased ...
Effects of shear stress and cyclic strain on the expression of thrombin receptor gene in human vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells
Mechanical forces such as shear stress and cyclic strain have been shown to regulate expression of many genes that can alter vascular functions such as cell proliferation, leading to the development of vascular diseases ...
