Squished cells could shape design of synthetic materials

Cell membranes stand up to significant amounts of stretching and bending, but only recently have scientists started to fully appreciate the useful organization and functions that result from all that stress. A multidisciplinary group is trying to recreate aspects of those broad design principles in synthetic systems comprised of simple membranes and complex fluids.
