Physics of cytoskeleton and morphogenesis

Our lab is focused on understanding how the cytoskeleton is organized and constrained to regulate cell morphogenesis. We have several complementary approaches from in-vitro reconstitution of cytoskeleton dynamics to cellular manipulation and observation. All these experimental strategies are coupled with theoretical models allowing a better description of how molecular events are orchestrated to determine macroscopic properties of the cytoskeleton necessary for cellular function.
