Viscoelasticity and Collective Cell Migration

Viscoelasticity and Collective Cell Migration: An Interdisciplinary Perspective Across Levels of Organization focuses on the main viscoelastic parameters formulated based on multiscale constitutive modeling and how to measure these rheological parameters based on existent micro-devices such as micro-rheology and micro-elastography. The book sheds light on inter-relationships across viscoelasticity scales, an essential step for understanding various biomedical processes such as morphogenesis, wound healing and cancers invasion. Cumulative effects of structural changes at subcellular and cellular levels influence viscoelasticity at a supracellular level are also covered, providing valuable insights for biologists, physicists, engineers, students and researchers in the field of developmental biology. As this is a complex multidisciplinary field, perspectives are included from experts in biology, biochemistry, biomedicine, biophysics and biorheology. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of the complex dynamics that represent challenges and the necessity for further development in the field. Discusses the biological/biochemical mechanisms of collective cell migration Covers the inter-relation between collective cell migration and viscoelasticity by proposing rheological parameters Contains critical consideration of various experimental techniques that are suitable to measure these parameters
