PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM: Push, Pull and Sense: how forces modulate cellular dynamics

Speaker: Arpita Upadhyaya, University of Maryland Abstract: Cells interact with their environment during diverse biological processes ranging from the immune response to large-scale organization of tissues during development. In addition to intricate genetic programs, these processes are also regulated by physical cues such as the rigidity, topography and fluidity of cells and their environment. Cells sense these physical attributes by spatially and temporally organizing internal components such as biopolymers or collections of proteins on their surface and by changing shape and exerting forces.
