The German Research Foundation approved funding for the new Collaborative Research Centre 1348 „Dynamic Cellular Interfaces“. The positive assessment of this initiative which is headed by Prof. Christian Klämbt and involves many researchers at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence gives additional momentum to the submission of a new proposal within the Excellence Strategy.


How do cells form blebs for their motility?

In order to be able to move, some cells form protrusions in the form of blebs. How do these blebs form? Researchers at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence have discovered that folds in the cell membrane play a decisive role. The study has been published in the journal “Developmental Cell”.
