Master 1/2 internship in Cell Biology and Biophysics

What makes tissues rigid of fluid?

The general goal of our project is to understand the cellular mechanisms that control where a tissue will be static or capable of dynamic reorganization. We study Xenopus embryonic ectoderm and mesoderm as prototypes for rigid, respectively fluid tissues.

We are looking for an outstanding candidate interested in the fields of Cell Biology and Biophysics. His/her project will focus on using biophysical approaches to monitor parameters such as cell contractility and cell-cell adhesion and their regulation during embryonic development.
