This course develops and applies scaling laws and
the methods of continuum mechanics to biomechanical phenomena over a range of
length scales. This lecture note explains the following topics: structure of
tissues and the molecular basis for macroscopic properties, chemical and
electrical effects on mechanical behavior, cell mechanics, motility and
adhesion, biomembranes, biomolecular mechanics and molecular motors.
Experimental methods for probing structures at the tissue, cellular, and
molecular levels will also be investigated.
