Connecting Educators and Engaging Students

The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology has expanded our educational community with the launch of the Network of Educational Partners in 2020. Through ongoing dialogue and programs dedicated to integrating and teaching mechanobiology to undergraduate and graduate students, we hope to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Involve more diverse students and faculty in CEMB educational programs
  2. Create a lasting community of mechanobiology educators
  3. Increase student engagement from regional universities in CEMB programs and mechanobiology research
  4. Develop and test best practices for teaching mechanobiology to diverse audiences, classes, and in different formats
