Cells-in-Motion podcast: Looking inside the cellular membrane by laser technology
The cellular membrane is an envelope surrounding a cell. It assumes many communicative and controlling functions in central processes of the cell. In a new episode of the Cells-in-Motion podcast Prof. Carsten Fallnich and Prof. Volker Gerke explain how they want to decode specific mosaic structures of the membrane that are central to the understanding of cells in motion.
Cells-in-Motion podcast: Cells on the move inside the zebrafish’s embryo
How do cells move forward? In cell migration, stiffness and elasticity play an important role. In a new episode of the Cells-in-Motion podcast, Prof. Cornelia Denz and Prof. Erez Raz explain how they will measure these biophysical properties for the first time. The embryo of a zebrafish is a very appropriate animal model for that. The podcast is a joint project of the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence and the Collaborative Research Centre 656 of the University of Münster.
