The Fernandez-Gonzalez Lab uses a combination of bioengineering, molecular and cell biological tools in the fruit fly embryo to determine the mechanisms that integrate the behaviours of multiple cells to generate specific changes in tissue organization. The lab investigates the molecular and cellular mechanisms of collective cell movements during a variety of processes using a three-pronged approach. 

Seminar Title
