Research Expertise and Interest
nuclear pore complex and nucleocytoplasmic transport, mechanobiology of disease, cellular mechanotransduction, integrin-mediated focal adhesions
Mofrad Lab is focused on exploring the molecular basis of cell mechanics and mechanotransduction with specific attention to:
- Mechanobiology of integrin-mediated focal adhesions.
- Mechanobiology of the nuclear pore complex and nucleocytoplasmic transport, with the ultimate goal to shed light on the role of these mechanobiological processes in human diseases.
