A new book chapter of the role of the actin cytoskeleton in mechanosensation

We wrote a book chapter about the role of the actin cytoskeleton in mechanosensation. The book title is Mechanosensitivity and Mechanotransduction, edited by A, Kamkin and I. Kiseleva and published by Springer-Verlag, New York.". 

In this chapter, we try to integrate mechanics, materials science, biophysics and biology together to give a most updated view of this field. We also want to introduce the feedback loop concept to mechanicians who are interested in studying biological systems.

I attached the pdf version and the follwoing is the subtitles of the chapter. 

Mechanobiology post-doctoral position, Oxford, UK

A postdoctoral research position is available immediately at the Mechanobiology Group, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatologyand Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford to study tendon mechanobiology and repair following injury or pathology. This is an exciting opportunity to join a multi-disciplinary team drawn from the Botnar Research Centre, the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the John Radcliffe Hospital to work at the forefront of strategically important musculoskeletal research.
