Abstract: Protective engineering is to understand the naturally occurring protective mechanisms against disorders in life systems and develop engineering strategies for inducing and optimizing protective processes, thereby facilitating recovery from disorders. The natural protective mechanisms are the foundation of protective engineering. These mechanisms have been established in response to environmental insults and genetic disorders through evolution and can be activated in the event of disorders to protect cells from death. However, the natural protective mechanisms are not optimized in timing and effectiveness. Engineering strategies can be developed to modify the natural mechanisms and optimize protective actions. In this presentation, ischemic stroke will be used as an example to demonstrate these concepts.
