Fluid and solid mechanics in active cellular processes

Presented by: 
Michael Shelley New York University, Simons Foundation
Date: 
Wednesday 20th September 2017 - 11:30 to 12:10
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Many fundamental phenomena in eukaryotic cells -- nuclear migration, spindle positioning, chromosome segregation -- involve the interaction of often transitory structures with boundaries and fluids. I will discuss the interaction of theory and simulation with experimental measurements of active processes within the cell. This includes understanding the force transduction mechanisms underlying nuclear migration, spindle positioning and oscillations, as well as how active displacement domains of chromatin might be forming in the interphase nucleus.
