BIOMEDICAL SEMINAR - with Prof Guillaume Charras from the London Centre for Nanotechnology, UK
Relaxation and blistering in epithelial cell monolayers
Epithelia are planar tissues, separating the internal environment from the external environment in many organs. Epithelia are subjected to mechanical perturbations that vary greatly in magnitude and timescale during development, normal physiological function and regeneration. The speaker will present two recent studies that examine the behaviour of monolayers over short or long time-scales.
