Bioengineering Assistant Professor Mohammad Mofrad was profiled in this month’s issue of Innovations from the UC Berkeley College of Engineering.
The article explained Mofrad’s cutting-edge work in the physics of cellular mechanobiology, including complex projects formulating computer models of molecular-level mechanobiology. One explores the role of focal adhesion, a molecular “glue” that involves protein complexes stretching from outside to inside the cell. Another investigates the nuclear pore complex (NPC), a basket-like group of proteins that control traffic in and out of the nucleus,
