Cell motility and chemokine-guided migration, lessons from zebrafish primordial germ cells

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Erez Raz

Institute of Cell Biology, ZMBE. Münster, Germany

Erez Raz, from the Center for Molecular Biology of Inflammation at the University of Münster, Germany, aims to understand basic processes such as the control over cell differentiation, proliferation, fate maintenance and migration, as well as investigating the dynamics of the cytoskeleton in the context of cell and tissue morphogenesis. He uses new optical and chemical tools and classical genetic approaches in the primordial germ cells in zebrafish as a model system.

He has been invited by Berta Alsina (UPF).
