Epithelial tissue polarization and morphogenesis

Our interdisciplinary group aims at understanding the basic principles coordinating the proliferation and the morphogenesis of epithelial tissues using Drosophila as a model system. We combine multiscale imaging, genetics and force measurement to decipher how cell polarity, cell proliferation and cell mechanics are functionally integrated to shape epithelial tissues.

Keywords: Drosophila / epithelial tissue dynamics / mitotic spindle orientation / morphogenesis

Subject area(s): Cell & Tissue Architecture | Development | Signal Transduction
