Cell dynamics and tissue mechanics during epithelial-mesenchymal transition

This computational project focuses on modification of cell behavior and epithelium architecture during EMT. We are interested in what drives normal epithelial growth and what changes in cell behavior are necessary and sufficient to promote EMT and cell extrusion.
