Multi-scale and multi-physics modelling in mechanobiology (4MB)

Research

Our current efforts focus on the description of the smaller scales of biological tissues. We focus on understanding and defining the motility of single cell as well as interactions of cell aggregates by means of mathematical tools. We are particularly interested in the interaction between mechanical clues and the intra-cellular chemical balance. We are also interested in bridging the gap between the organ level, e.g. the brain, or organoids and the subcellular level, e.g. adhesion molecules and actin dynamics. Our modeling approaches cover multidisciplinary aspects of biology, mathematical models and state-of-the-art numerical methods.
