Living Tissues

Understand the emergence of the materials properties of tissues, including their adaptive mechanics, the ability of different cell types to form and maintain compartment boundaries, mechanical mechanisms of cell patterning and organization. Quantify how tissue behavior at large scale is controlled by single-cell properties and the interaction of cells with the environment, and apply this understanding to developmental processes and cancer invasion.
