Research Abstract

Botvinick.s research focuses on the relationship between mechanical stresses on cells and molecular signaling, or cellular mechanotransduction. His lab is currently investigating the role of the glycocalix in the transduction of fluid shear stress at the wall of blood vessels, and is constructing an instrument to study the scale of mechanical induction of vascular inflammation.
