Cellular architecture

The goal of my laboratory is to analyze cytoskeletal systems following quantitative physical approaches, including a strong theory component. We have established numerical methods to model the dynamics of cytoskeletal networks, implemented in cytosim, an Open Source computer simulation platform. We also conduct experiments to study the assembly of the mitotic spindle and the mechanical properties of blood platelets.
