Abstract: 
Several problems regarding cell motility and morphogenesis are characterized by the contemporary presence of cells that behave as single entities and cells that follow and cluster around them. From the mathematical point of view, describing such phenomena requires the development of mathematical models in which virtual cells can switch from a discrete to a continuous description. Keeping this in mind, the talk aims at presenting some ideas on how to do that, making for instance use of measure theory or introducing the concept of bubble functions.
