We want to understand in physical and molecular terms how cells talk to each other during development. We are interested in the signaling events that control tissue growth – how is the shape and final size of a tissue achieved during embryogenesis? We focus on two types of proliferation modes: growth control by morphogen gradients and asymmetric cell division in stem cells. We do this using two model systems, Drosophila and zebrafish.

Keywords: Drosophila / zebrafish / morphogens / biophysics / endocytosis
