Dr. Helene Langevin, Director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine will be presenting at the Wyss Institute’s 7th Annual Symposium this fall at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School. The free one-day conference is being organized by Wyss Institute Core Faculty members, Dave Mooney and Don Ingber.
Dr. Langevin’s presentation, entitled “Connective Tissue, Stretching, Wound Healing and Cancer” will be held at 11:00am. Visit the Wyss Institute to Register.
The symposium will focus on advances in the field of Mechanobiology that have resulted in the development of new types of pharmaceuticals, drug delivery systems, engineered tissues, and wearable therapeutic devices that leverage physical forces or target mechanical signaling pathways as a core part of their mechanism of action. Dr. Langevin will be one of a number of distinguished speakers who will provide examples of how mechanics is being harnessed in ways that can transform the future of medicine.
