Morgan Delarue explains his research into the effects of mechanical compression (pressure) on the behavior of cells! This research is important to understand cancer because cancer cells grow a lot in a confined space and so build up pressure. Morgan was a postdoc in Liam Holt's lab at NYU.
Update: Morgan now runs his own lab at the LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse, France.
• Watch Greg Brittingham's talk to learn about how pressure can make the inside of a cell more crowded and affect the movement of the macromolecules inside.
