Physics: It's What's Happening Inside Your Body Right Now

A new Georgia Tech and Emory University study shows that simple physics may play a larger role than previously thought in helping control key bodily processes – such as how the body fights infection.

Using a model blood vessel system built on a polymer microchip, researchers have shown that the relative softness of white blood cells determines whether they remain in a dormant state along vessel walls or enter blood circulation to fight infection. Changes in these cell mechanical properties – from stiff to soft – can be triggered as a side effect of drugs commonly used to fight inflammation or boost blood pressure.
