11th Bioengineering Seminar: Cells, cell sheets and insect embryos: modelling the role of mechanics in tissue development

Published: 21 September 2012

Carina Dunlop, a mathematician from the University of Surrey, will be giving a seminar on cell mechanics at 2pm in room 2207 in the IfLS (Building 85) of Southampton University Highfield Campus

Date: 2 - 3pm, 21 September 2012

Place: Room 2207, Building 85, Highfield Campus

Carina's research focuses on using mathematical and computational approaches to solve a broad range of problems in developmental biology, tissue morphogenesis and cancer modelling. A particular research focus is on the cell as a physical object, incorporating an understanding of the role of mechanical forces into models of biological processes. I draw on a diverse range of concepts in pursuing this research ranging from population modelling to the theories of fluid dynamics and elasticity theory. Currently ongoing projects include work on tissue self-organization, mechanical regulation of growth and cellular contractility.
