Description of the thesis topic
Adhesive membrane receptors sense extracellular signals and mechanically transmit intracellular signals to coordinate cell shape, cell migration and cell identity. These receptors are often localized in specific regions, as in the case of microdomains enriched with adhesive receptors and co-receptors; however, the dynamic interactions of the receptors with various co-receptors within microdomains on cell surfaces remain largely unexplored. The aim of the thesis will be to understand the dynamics of adhesive receptors and co-receptors in complex biomimetic environments in order to identify the impact of these dynamics on cell identity.
The work will be carried out in our group "Dynamics of Cell Afesion and Differentiation" at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences, La Tronche. The team has a long experience in adhesive systems research covering a wide range of approaches to study the impact of the dynamics of adhesion structures on cell migration, invasion and identity. The group is composed of 4 permanent scientists, 2 Assistant Engineers, 1 technician, and 1 PhD student.
