Spatiotemporal organization of the nucleus

The main interest of our lab is to study the effect of external physical cues on cell nuclear organization in space and time. We aim to investigate, relaying on quantitative and multidisciplinary approaches, if and how in function of specific mechanical stress genes are re-positioned and/or differentially activated. read more
