Cells are tiny, but what they can reveal about our health is profound. UCLA's Amy Rowat is investigating the texture and squishiness of cells in our body, which can have a huge impact on treatments for cancer and genetic disorders. She explains the mechanics of a cell and describes the teeny, tiny instruments she's created to study them.
