Cell migration, micro-fabrication and hydrogel synthesis, tumor microenvironment, cancer mechanobiology, and computational modeling of cell-matrix interactions
Amit Pathak's research interests include biomechanics, biomaterials, mechanobiology of the cell, and interactions between cells and extracellular matrices. In particular, his research aims to understand how mechanical properties of three-dimensional matrices affect cell behavior through various sub-cellular mechanisms. His lab tackles this multi-variable problem through a multidisciplinary approach that includes fabrication of new matrix platforms, development of advanced measurement tools in cell biology, and construction of predictive computational models.
