Description of the thesis topic

Collective cell movements give rise to complex changes in multicellular tissue structures, including epithelial regeneration, morphogenesis, and invasion of cell masses during cancer progression, and thus integrate both adhesion to the ECM and to neighboring cells. Mechanical external constraints have been shown to influence both in vivo and in vitro collective migration behaviours. We will study cell migration and tissue homestasis. We will use microfabrication, microscopy , cell mechanical tools and cell biology methods.

Work Context

Our group is part of the Institut Jacques Monod (https://www.ijm.fr), which is housed in a brand new building on the new Paris campus. The Institut Jacques Monod is one of the leading public centers for basic research in biology in Paris and offers a state-of-the-art research environment. It offers a rich, multidisciplinary environment, as well as access to different experimental approaches within our laboratory and technological platforms to ensure proper research development. The Thesis will be supervised by B. Ladoux.
