Collective Cell Migration

Collective cell migration is the process of several cells migrating as a cohesive group, in which each individual actively coordinates its own movement with that of its neighbors. It plays very critical roles during embryogenesis, wound healing, and cancer progression. We are taking an interdisciplinary approach to understand how physical forces and stresses at the single cell and multicellular levels interact with the biochemical signaling pathways to support the well-orchestrated movement of several cells in moving epithelial monolayers.
