  Calculus III for Cells
 
Last year, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania revealed surprising insights into how cells respond to surface curvature. Now, the researchers, co-led by Kathleen Stebe, Richer & Elizabeth Goodwin Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, have published a follow up study that Stebe likens to “calc III” for cells, investigating how cells respond to more complex geometries.

  Penn Engineers' Gold Nanorods Key to Measuring Materials’ Squishiness at the Nanoscale
 
Researchers at Penn Engineering have made advances in the field of "microrheology," developing a microscopy system able to make such measurements at previously impossible length scales. The researchers, John C. Crocker, professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, along with lab members Mehdi Molaei and Ehsan Atefi, published a study detailing this system in the journal Physical Review Letters.
