Xavier Trepat

Integrative Cell and Tissue Dynamics Group, Institute for Bioengineering for Catalonia. Barcelona, Spain

Xavier Trepat, from the Institute for Bioengineering for Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain, tries to understand the biophysical mechanisms underlying migration both at the single cell level and at the tissue level. He develops technologies that combined with computational analysis of cell shape and velocity allow to obtain a full experimental characterization of epithelial dynamics during tissue growth, wound healing, and cancer cell invasion.

He has been invited by Antonio García de Herreros (IMIM).
