Gary Lewin, and his team from the Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin, Germany, talk through their research looking at mechano-transduction. They explain how using experimental systems are enabling them to find out more about the spectrum of cells responsible for transducing mechanical forces into electrical signalling.

A series of podcasts produced by The Society reporting on Mechano-sensitivity. These were recorded at The Physiological Society’s Themed Meeting in Durham, 15-17 December 2010.
