New paper – Cyclic Mechanical Properties of Infection and Hormone Mediated Cervical Remodeling

Our new manuscript detailing the mechanical properties of the cervix subjected to infection- and hormone-mediated premature cervical remodeling is now online in Acta Biomaterialia.

The article is authored by Charles Jayyosi in collaboration with Mala Mahendroo’s lab at UTSWMC.

Article – Acta Biomaterialia:
The mechanical response of the mouse cervix to tensile cyclic loading in term and preterm pregnancy

Congratulations to Frank and Yu

The Myers and Hendon Labs congratulate Frank Yao and Yu Gan on their well-deserved doctoral degrees from Columbia University. Yu and Frank pioneered imaging and analysis techniques to quantify collagen fiber architecture in the human cervix. Their work defines cervical anisotropic material properties, helping us understand the mechanical integrity of the cervix during pregnancy.
