New research groups established at the Cluster of Excellence PoL
The Cluster of Excellence PoL
welcomes Adele Doyle and Otger Campàs as new core group leaders, which both started on July 1, 2021. Adele Doyle leads the research group Mechanobiology of Stem Cells, hosted at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) of TU Dresden. Using approaches from engineering, biology, and computer science, her group studies how molecular circuits enable specialized mechanosignaling. Otger Campàs holds the Chair of Tissue Dynamics
and leads the research group Physics of Embryonic Self-Organization and Morphogenesis to study how cells self-organize to build embryonic structures. The Campàs lab is currently hosted at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG).
