Mechanics of cell and tissue development, collective behaviors in living systems
Living systems undergo highly stereotypic shape changes as they develop their final target shape. The Yevick lab is an interdisciplinary team that brings together soft matter biophysics, developmental biology, and computer science to understand how mechanical patterns at the tissue scale yield robust tissue shapes. We work primarily with cell culture and the fruit fly early embryos to uncover how cellular architecture, intercellular connectivity, and global tissue patterns impact collective dynamics during development. Understanding the physics of how populations of tissues and organs gain their final shape will shed light onto developmental defects that result from morphogenetic dysregulation.
