Asylum Research, the technology leader in AFM, presents the webinar “Soft, Squishy, and Sticky: AFM for Mechanobiology,” on October 24, 2018 at 8:30am PDT. The webinar gives an insightful overview of atomic force microscopy (AFM) for mechanobiology, discussing the latest instrumentation, techniques and results, for successful elastic deformation measurements. Guest speaker, Dr. Nicholas A. Geisse, Chief Science Officer of NanoSurface Biomedical, Inc., will provide details for choosing the right nanomechanical techniques and how to avoid common pitfalls. Recent results from leading researchers in the field will also be presented. Register now at https://afm.oxinst.com/Mechanobiology-webinar.

This webinar will be an excellent primer for those scientists who wish to increase their success in mechanobiology experiments or for those looking to add AFM to their toolkit. Research has demonstrated that the geometrical and mechanical properties of the extracellular microenvironment are important in such processes as cancer, cardiovascular disease, muscular dystrophy, and even the control of cell life and death. AFM can provide unique insights into these processes at the nanoscale.
