The López-Schier Group

File:Neurons.tif

Our group focuses on understanding understanding the fundamental principles that govern the assembly and homeostasis of sensory epithelia and sensorineural circuits.

Our studies relate to what we call "functional tissue architecture", how tissue shape serves organ function. We believe that shedding light on this question is important because it may let us understand how organs have evolved, how they work, and also how structural changes associated to diseases impact on their function. We employ genetic, electrophysiological and molecular approaches and state-of-the-art optical imaging techniques, and also a powerful set of tools for biophysical analyses. In particular, we use mechanosensory organs to find the genetic, cellular and mechanical substrates and mechanisms the govern sensory-organ assembly and remodeling and sensory-neural circuitry. Our interdisciplinary team if formed by scientists with diverse backgrounds, from geneticists and cell biologists, to mathematicians, physicist and computational biologists, employing an integrative approach to biology and biomedicine.
