[Illinois] B3SI 2012: Mechanobiology in Neuronal Development

By Taher A. Saif

Mechanical Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL

Published on



Professor Saif's research focuses on the mechanics of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), fracture mechanics, submicron materials behavior and bio-MEMS. He uses MEMS devices, often of his own design, to explore the mechanics of extremely small things-from nanocrystalline metal films to living cells.
