Monday September 24, 2012 12:00 - 12:30 @ Rhodes 7    Cell behavior in angiogenesis Abstract: To form interconnected networks of endothelial tubes, sprouting vessels of the developing vasculature have to connect to each other, a process referred to as anastomosis. To better understand cell behavior during anastomosis, we studied how angiogenic sprouts connect to give rise to a fully lumenized vessel (DLAV) in different... Read More →

Monday September 24, 2012 11:45 - 12:00 @ Rhodes 7    Mechanical control of tissue morphogenesis by the Fat/Dachsous/Four-jointed planar cell polarity pathway Abstract: During animal development, several planar cell polarity (PCP) pathways control tissue shape by coordinating collective cell behavior. Recent studies implicated cell tension as a regulator of convergence extension movement, the physical separation of... Read More →

Monday September 24, 2012 11:15 - 11:45 @ Rhodes 7    A Framework for Tissue Cell Polarity in Plants and Animals Abstract: Development involves highly oriented cell behaviours, such as anisotropic growth and asymmetric cell divisions.  It is unclear how these orientations are specified and coordinated over extended tissue domains. We have been addressing this problem through computer simulations of cell polarity... Read More →

Monday September 24, 2012 12:45 - 13:15 @ Rhodes 7    Lung stem cells and their role in tissue homeostasis and repair Abstract: The Hogan lab is studying the epithelial stem cells in different regions of the lung – the large and small airways, and the millions of alveoli in the distal region where gas exchange takes place. In each region, stem cells play critical roles in maintaining the physical integrity, polarity and... Read More →

Monday September 24, 2012 12:30 - 12:45 @ Rhodes 7  |   | | Computational Models of Lung and Kidney Branching Morphogenesis | | Abstract: | | Many organs of higher organisms, such as lung, kidney, and glands, are heavily branched structures. The branching process during kidney and lung development is remarkably stereotyped. The branched trees of lungs and kidneys are generated by the sequential, non-random use of... Read More →
