Our group is interested in understanding how cells sense, integrate and
respond to biochemical and mechanical signals from their environment to
form functional tissue and organs, and finally a complete embryo.
are particularly interested in epithelial cells which interact a lot
with their environment and assemble into tissues that shape our organs.
We use the zebrafish embryo (Danio rerio) as a model organism to study
the mechanisms underlying epithelia biology in an in vivo context.
