Prof. WANG Ning from HUST Visits IHB
Prof. WANG Ning from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) visited IHB on June 25, 2018.
Prof. WANG Ning from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) paid a visit to Institute of Hydrobiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences (IHB) on June 25, 2018. During his visit, Prof. Wang gave a lecture with the title of “Mechanobiology and Mechanomedicine”.
In his presentation, Prof. Wang first introduced the concept of “Forth in single cell” with clues of “Forth in animals” and “Forth in human body”. He then introduced some key factors in cellular biomechanics, such as integrin and cytoskeleton, and showed his early research works.
Prof. Wang focused his presentation on the relationship of forth transduction and distance and demonstrated that forth could impact cellular expression over long distance.
Towards the end of his presentation, Prof. Wang explained mechanomedicine from “stem cell differentiation”, “embryonic development” and “tumorigenesis”.
IHB scholars and students discussed with Prof. Wang about issues such as “whether forth could precisely control the expression of a particular gene”, “forth sensitivity of different organelle” and “the influence of mechanical environment to in vivo / in vitro experiment results” in the discussion session.
