CMMS Talks

Dr. Anna Erzberger zu Gast bei CMMS

Veranstaltungsort: Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, Ruth-Moufang-Str. 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Lecture Hall

Am 27.04.2023 hält Dr. Anna Erzberger einen Vortrag mit dem Titel "Surface dynamics in living systems".


Surface dynamics in living systems

Spontaneous generation of patterns and structures occurs in many living systems and is linked to biological form and function. Such processes often take place on domains which themselves evolve in time, and they can be guided by or coupled to geometrical features. Using different biophysical examples, I will discuss how geometry affects spatial organization in cellular and multicellular systems. In particular, I will show recent work on the mechanics of embryo-uterus interactions during implantation [1], the spontaneous rotation of cell-cell interfaces in developing sensory cells [2], and the patterning of feather follicles [3].
