Excerpt
Excerpt: I. Overview: The transduction of forces in biology plays an essential role in a wide range of phenomena, from cell division to response of tissues to gravity. An unusual feature of these forces is that they often are transmitted over multiple length scales. However, biological force transduction problems are normally discussed within the context of relatively narrow disciplinary meetings, characterized by a particular scale, such as a molecule, cell, etc. The impetus for the Workshop was the realization that, owing to recent developments, important problems of biological force transduction over multiple length scales could be usefully discussed within a single venue. This Workshop aimed to explore recent advances, particularly at the molecular and cellular level, and to make special efforts to bridge the discussion to important problems of interest to workers at the tissue and organ level. Over 100 scientists representing a range of disciplines attended the Workshop. The attendees gathered over a three day schedule, with the following objectives: (1) To present recent advances in research on biological force transduction, (2) To identify new, interdisciplinary or synergistic interactions that could speed progress, and (3) To make recommendations about resources or mechanisms needed to realize these opportunities.
