Improved diagnosis and prognosis of diseases, and developing effective preventive strategies and therapies can only be achieved if the healthy tissue mechanics and multifactorial mechanisms involved in the onset and progression of the related pathologies are elucidated. Biomechanical factors and mechanisms are heavily involved in system-, organ-, tissue- and cell-scale functional organizations in the human body. Hence, understanding the biomechanics engaged at all these levels for both healthy and pathological structures is of great importance.
