We are interested in high-strain-rate bio-mechanics for disease diagnosis and cell engineering.
In order to apply HSR mechanical stimuli to a single cell, we are trying to employ a recently developed micro-ballistics technique that can produce a high-speed collision of a single micro-particle to a target specimen. Utilizing extreme mechanical stimuli from the microscopic collision, we are trying to differentiate any subtle difference in the intrinsic mechanical properties of individual cancer cells.
