Control of gene expression Using single molecule techniques (e.g. Magnetic Tweezers), we study relevant processes (initiation of transcription, initiation of replication) and their implication in the control of gene expression.
Cell mechanics The mechanical properties of cells play a key role in regulating a large number of physiological functions. For instance, a change in mobility would allow a single cell to detach from a primary tumor site, infiltrate adjacent tissues, penetrate the vascular walls and finally colonize competent organs. To study the mechanical phenotype of cells, we use a technique known as Traction Force Microscopy and aim at correlating the change in the mechanical properties and the onset of a metastatic phenotype.
