Mechanics of cells and tissues

My lab studies how the cytoskeleton controls the mechanical properties of cells and tissues. We are particularly interested in how molecular and cellular properties interplay to control organisation at the tissue-scale and how changes in signalling can dynamically alter shape. For this, we combine molecular cell biology approaches with techniques and concepts from physics and engineering.
