4th EFI seminar by Dr. Thomas Boudou from the Université Grenoble Alpes, France
The fourth EFI seminar was held by Dr. Thomas Boudou, Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire de Physique, Université Grenoble Alpes, France. His work on how cells respond to mechanical forces and the microfabrication of 3D microtissues was very interesting and relevant for the EFI project. Dr. Boudou presented several approaches to measure and modulate the mechanics of such tissues. During his stay, he visited the labs at the Chair of Biomaterials (WW7), the Chair of Applied Mechanics, and the Biophysics group.
With a background in mechanical engineering and his more recent work towards cells and biology, Dr. Thomas Boudou was a perfect fit for our EFI research approach. In the evening, we had a great time and further inspiring discussions at the Christmas Market.
