At the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence, Prof. Ryan Gilmour is developing new types of chemical reactions to provide molecules with fluorine atoms. This plays a role for example in the development of drugs. He has now been awarded a coveted Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council.


How cells generate forces

Researchers at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence show that microtubules, which are tubular filaments that form part of the cytoskeleton, generate mechanical forces und contribute to collective cell behaviour during tissue morphogenesis. The study has been published in “Nature Cell Biology”.
