The essential question of materials science is this: how does the underlying makeup of a material determine its macroscopic-scale behavior? We are interested in precisely that question, but within the specific concept of mechanically-functioning tissues. As such, we focus on mechanical properties and on the transmission of mechanical information between the large and the small scale.
