Quantification of mechanical forces within cell-dense biological structures

The Darling Lab article “Force sensors for measuring microenvironmental forces during mesenchymal condensation” was accepted for publication in Biomaterials. This study demonstrated an exciting, new way to directly measure the microscale forces that cells exert, and have exerted on them, in developing tissue structures. A more detailed write-up on this study is available via Brown’s News Page. Congratulations to lead author Robert Gutierrez!
