Getting in Shape: in vivo and in silico studies of tissue mechanics in growth control

Dr. Yanlan Mao (University College London )

Friday 15th December, 2017 11:00-12:00 Maths 116


How tissue size and shape are controlled is a fundamental biological question that remains remarkably ill understood. Using a combination of genetics, live imaging, experimental biophysics and computational modeling, we show that tissue mechanical forces can have an instrumental role in controlling tissue growth patterns and 3D tissue morphogenesis.
