Imaging and Regulation of Morphogenesis in Higher Vertebrates


Jérôme Gros and his team are interested in the role of cell behaviour (cell shape, movement, division, etc.) in tissue morphogenesis and how it impacts patterning of different structures during embryogenesis of higher vertebrates. They use an integrative approach ranging from classical embryology, molecular genetics, cellular biology, state-of-the-art live imaging microscopy and biophysics to understand how cells and molecular cues interplay to shape tissues during embryogenesis.
