PhD: Tissue mechanics, modelling and quantitative microscopy

This project aims to determine how the mechanical properties of tissues influences cancerous cells to invade. It will focus on how mechanical properties of tumour cells and the surrounding tissue, influence cytoskeletal regulators that promote tumour invasion. For this the new PhD will apply multidisciplinary expertise in mechanobiology, physics, computational modelling and quantitative optical imaging to understand the biology of cancer invasion.
