Cellular architecture group at EMBL

Our research objective is to understand the cytoskeleton of living cells, with an emphasis on mitosis. We develop in-vitro assays, quantitative image analysis and cytosim, a computer simulation to study cellular architecture from a mechanistic perspective, modeling the interactions of microtubules and associated proteins such as molecular motors. Please check our publications for a list of topics.


Mechanical Design Principles of a Mitotic Spindle (eLife)

We are supported by BioMS and Cell networks.
