“Molecular Mechanisms of Polarization and Cell Guidance for Collective Migration”

Friday, September 16, 2016
Ramsay Wright Building, Room 432 at 2 p.m.

Host:  Sergey Plotnikov <sergey.plotnikov@utoronto.ca>

I will be presenting our recent work on how cells coordinate their cytoskeletal and signaling machineries to be able to collectively migrate. Particularly, we have been employing live cell imaging and a HUVEC endothelial cell model to understand cell polarization and guidance. I will focus my talk on an intriguing discovery we made of an engulfed tubular structure “cadherin fingers” that have a critical role in cell guidance and the coordination of collective migration.
