Cells Under Pressure!

Updated: Jan 16

by Morgan Delarue

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.
