Understanding the mechanics of cells...

University of Southampton researchers are at the forefront of research into mechanobiology, an emerging field of science combining biology and engineering, which investigates the influence of mechanical forces on cellular and molecular processes.

Mechanobiology has a large potential to bring new insights into physiological function, aetiology (the study of the causes of diseases) and prevention of chronic diseases including heart failure, cancer, osteoporosis and neuromuscular disorders. It could also contribute to the development of effective regenerative therapies and ultimately, lead to innovations in biomedicine and biotechnology in the coming years.

southampton port

A History of Southampton Port...

The history of Southampton dates back to prehistoric times.

Southampton has been influenced over the centuries by huge cultural shifts. These include the Roman invasion, the Viking invasion, and the Norman invasion. Despite this, Southampton has always maintained its identity as a port. 

Known first and foremost as a port, Southampton is centred directly in the middle of the South Coast, between Hampshire and London. Although the port’s location shows evidence of Stone Age dwellings, there is no evidence that Stone Age citizens used the shoreline as a port. The first time that it was used for this purpose was in 70AD when the Romans used the site to ship goods to and from Italy. The Roman’s left in 407AD, leaving the port to the Saxons who used it as a shipping port in 700AD. Predominantly transporting wine and wool, The Saxons thrived at Southampton port until the invasion of the Vikings in 865 AD. The Vikings took hold of England for several years, sapping the Saxon’s resources and killing thousands of their people. Despite this, the port was still in use.
