Research Description:

I am using imaginal discs from larval Drosophila to investigate how cysts form in epithelial tissue. We want to unravel the underlying biomechanical and molecular changes involved in this tissue abnormality. Hopefully, this will shed light on normal invagination processes that occur during development and abnormal cyst formations such as in some cancers and other human diseases like e.g. polycystic kidneys.
