Topic title: Interdisciplinary Collaboration of Science, Engineering, and Medicine: From Biomechanics and Mechanobiology to Mechanopathology and Mechanomedicine


Throughout the history of technological development, the progress of any discipline is not isolated. Interdisciplinary research is necessary for modern scientific and technological innovation, and it is also the catalyst for rapid technology development. From traditional Chinese acupuncture and massage to modern physical rehabilitation, mechanics has always been associated with the development of medicine. As an endogenous element of living organisms, mechanical factors can not only serve as important criteria for disease diagnosis but are also efficient and powerful in disease intervention. With the development of science and technology, our understanding of life and health has gradually increased, especially in the past few decades. The rapid development in biomechanics and mechanobiology research has continuously raised the importance of mechanics in life and health. This has promoted the emergence and development of mechanopathology and mechanomedicine, and meanwhile has revitalized the field of biomedicine. In the context of the rapid development of biomedical engineering technology and its protection of public health, emphasizing the intersection of mechanics and biomedicine helps guide the high-quality development of science. Conducting mechanopathology and Mechanomedicine studies which are based on biomechanics and biophysics is of significant importance in promoting industries of medical diagnosis and treatment, as well as providing multiple new ideas for developing intervention measures for serious and chronic diseases.
