Prof. Dr. Ben Fabry

Department of Physics

We study the mechanical behavior (such as stiffness, force generation and movements) of cells, tissue, and whole organisms, to help better understand mechanical aspects of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal or inflammatory disorders.
