First look at how individual staphylococcus cells adhere to nanostructures could lead to new ways to thwart infections. Berkeley Lab led research could guide the development of bacteria-resistant materials.
Your cells are social butterflies. They constantly interact with their surroundings, taking in cues on when to divide and where to anchor themselves, among other critical tasks.
UC Berkeley assistant professor of bioengineering Mohammad Mofrad has been busy uncovering the mysteries of how human cells behave when physical force is applied to them, working at the exact intersection of engineering and biology.
