Collective cell biology of organ formation

Whether it is the assembly of proteins into complexes or the organisation of animal societies, collective interactions create something greater than the sum of the parts. Our group studies how cell collectives assemble into functional organs in living embryos. We are particularly interested in cellular mechanisms that allow dynamic tissue properties, such as shape and motility, to feed back on the genome and regulate cell fate.
