HST.523J Cell-Matrix Mechanics (MIT)
Mechanical forces play a decisive role during development of tissues and organs, during remodeling following injury as well as in normal function. A stress field influences cell function primarily through deformation of the extracellular matrix to which cells are attached. Deformed cells express different biosynthetic activity relative to undeformed cells. The unit cell process paradigm combined with topics in connective tissue mechanics form the basis for discussions of several topics from cell

7.340 Avoiding Genomic Instability: DNA Replication, the Cell Cycle, and Cancer (MIT)
In this class we will learn about how the process of DNA replication is regulated throughout the cell cycle and what happens when DNA replication goes awry. How does the cell know when and where to begin replicating its DNA? How does a cell prevent its DNA from being replicated more than once? How does damaged DNA cause the cell to arrest DNA replication until that damage has been repaired? And how is the duplication of the genome coordinated with other essential processes? We will examine both

Christopher Benincasa recently sat down with director Michael Sexton to talk about his fresh, modern take on the play, and what it has to say to us in 2014 – more than four centuries after it was written.
