Gardel, Margaret HHMI/HCIA Summer Institute Principal Investigator, Whitman Center


Our laboratory integrates approaches from soft condensed matter physics and molecular cell biology to study how mechanical forces are sensed, transmitted and generated by animal cells. We are interested in understanding the basic physical principles underlying force transmission of the cytoskeleton and elucidating how these biophysical properties regulate cellular behaviors, especially cell adhesion and migration.
