About the speaker
Dr. Hervé Turlier runs the Multiscale Physics of Morphogenesis at Collège de France where they aim to answer the following questions “How do cells control their shape, position and fate?, What information is processed by a cell to take its next decision? How is morphogenetic information transmitted within the embryo?What principles underly robustness & variability of early embryo development?"
To do this they use multiscale physics simulations of whole embryos, data driven methods to reverse engineer feedback controls between mechanics and chemical signalling, and the study of multiple organisms to try and contribute to the emerging field of Evolutionary Morphogenesis.
