Biomimetic system

​​​​​To understand the dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton, researchers at the Plant Cell & Physiology Laboratory and at the Institut Curie have developed an in vitro biomimetic system to reconstitute it. By coupling a model reflecting the complexity of this dynamic, it becomes possible to identify and formulate the principles governing the cytoskeletal dynamics and organization. This research allows for example to highlight the consequences of intracellular mechanical malfunctions for diseases such as cancer.​
