Link between substrate stiffness and adipose differentiation reported

Work from collaborative efforts between Brian Kirby's and Claudia Fischbach's lab was reported in Biotechnology and Bioengineering today (click here to link to paper).  The work, which included Kirbylab students Caroline Berglund, Bill Polacheck, and postdoc Jason Gleghorn, demonstrates that matrix stiffness controls adipose differentiation in progenitor cells.
