Mechanobiology Institute

Instituted in 2009, the Mechanobiology Institute was created through joint funding by the National Research Foundation and the Ministry of Education with the goal of creating a new research centre in mechanobiology to benefit both the discipline and Singapore.MBI’s primary focus is to identify, measure and describe how the forces for motility and morphogenesis are expressed at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Toward that goal, we are working to create a common international standard for defining these steps by developing powerful new computational models, experimental reagents, and tools for studying diseases of cells and tissues. Our goal is then to transfer these basic discoveries to both the clinic and the classroom.
