New Materials and Biosystems (Spatz)
Investigation of the interaction between synthetic and living materials:
Understanding of the dynamic regulation of adhesive contacts and of the cytoskeleton architecture of cells, its resultant influence on cellular activities.
Application of new optical and mechanical techniques and novel micro- and nanostructured materials to perform adhesion and mechanical experiments on living cells.
Construction of biomimetic models of protein networks with tunable complexity to untangle chemo-mechanical properties of the cytoskeleton and the adhesion complex.
