Our objective is to educate researchers and graduate students about the fundamentals of cell and molecular biomechanics, and to provide an intense learning experience, and to facilitate interactions among engineers, biologists and clinicians. The goals are to help train a new generation of researchers with in-depth knowledge of mechanics and biology and to help engineers and biologists apply biomechanical approaches in biomolecular, cellular, tissue-level, animal model studies.


Professor Hsia has been on the faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 1991.

His research interests include deformation and failure mechanisms of materials at ambient and elevated temperatures, micro/nanomechanics of materials, and nanoscale phenomena in biomaterials.
