Imaging and regulation of the cellular events that shape the vertebrate embryo

Date: Thursday, January 11, 2018 10:30 - 11:30
Speaker: Jerome Gros (Institute Pasteur, Paris)
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 3, Central Building
Series: Life Sciences Seminar
Host: Ani Kicheva

Abstract:

Our lab is interested in the role of cell behavior (cell shape, rearrangements, division, etc.) in tissue morphogenesis and how it impacts patterning of different structures during embryogenesis. We use the avian embryo as a model and an integrative approach ranging from classical embryology, molecular genetics, cellular biology, state-of-the-art live imaging microscopy and biophysics to understand how cells and molecular cues interplay to shape tissues during embryogenesis. In particular, we are interest in understanding how the process gastrulation takes place and how it controls limb position during development.
