The Cells in Motion (CiM) Interfaculty Centre brings together and supports researchers from medicine, biology, chemistry, pharmacy, mathematics, computer science and physics who join forces to work on a big topic: They investigate how cells behave in organisms. To this end, they employ and develop innovative imaging methods. Our interfaculty network is the centrepiece of the University of Münster’s research focus in “cell dynamics, inflammation and imaging”.

Self-correction capabilities of developing tissues: New research group at the MPI

Dr. Mauricio Rocha-Martins will head the new independent research group “Embryo Self-correction” at the Max Planck Institute from 1 May, 2024, and is a new member of the Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre. Using the zebrafish and human organoid models, he and his team investigate how cells work together to overcome developmental stress and form healthy organs.
