Active transport in complex environments
This research presents a new generation of probabilistic models that allow for the estimation of the carrier and removal of disease-causing “ghost cells” in the response of the immune system.
Fingering instability in spreading epithelial monolayers: roles of cell polarisation, substrate friction and contractile stresses.
A critical contractile stress that depends on cell-substrate friction and the initial-to-nematic length ratio, characterising an active wetting-dewetting transition is obtained, which shows that in the dewetting scenario, the monolayer retracts and becomes stable without developing finger-like structures.


Continuum Models of Collective Cell Migration.
This review discusses recent advances in modeling collective cell migration using quantitative tools and approaches rooted in soft matter physics, focusing on theoretical models of cell aggregates as continuous active media, where the feedback between mechanical forces and regulatory biochemistry gives rise to rich collective dynamical behavior.
Collective stresses drive competition between monolayers of normal and Ras-transformed cells.
The competition for space between two cell lines that differ only in the expression of the Ras oncogene is studied, and the transformed cell population with larger collective stresses pushes the wild type cell population.
Dynamic molecular processes mediate cellular mechanotransduction
An emerging insight is that transduction of forces into biochemical signals occurs within the context of these processes, which helps explain how forces of varying strengths or dynamic characteristics regulate distinct signalling pathways.
Directional Collective Migration in Wound Healing Assays.
The protocol of the two methods for relieving contact inhibition upon scratching and a protocol to estimate cell proliferation upon wound healing based on the incorporation of the nucleotide analog EdU are provided.
An introduction to the wound healing assay using live-cell microscopy
This technical review describes the workflow of the wound healing assay as monitored by optical microscopy and recommends general guidelines for consistency, including sample preparation including the creation of the gap, microscope equipment requirements, and the use of image analysis to measure the gap size and its rate of closure over time.
Inhibition of Protein Kinase B (PKB) and PKCζ Mediates Keratin K10-Induced Cell Cycle Arrest
It is shown that keratin K10 function as a negative modulator of cell cycle progression involves changes in the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI-3K) signal transduction pathway, and functional and biochemical data demonstrate that the interaction between K10 and these kinases involves the non-α-helical amino domain of K10 (NTerm).
Strength of Materials
THIS text-book, which is based on the notes of lectures given by the author to day and evening students at the Manchester Municipal School of Technology, deals with the fundamental principles which
Live Cell Imaging A Laboratory Manual

Medical Image Segmentation Using K-Means Clustering and Improved Watershed Algorithm
This work addresses the drawbacks of the conventional watershed algorithm when it is applied to medical images by using k-means clustering to produce a primary segmentation of the image before the authors apply their improved watershed segmentation algorithm to it.
Mechanical Control of Cell Proliferation Increases Resistance to Chemotherapeutic Agents.
It is found that increased compressive stress leads to decreased drug efficacy, and theoretical modeling and experiments suggest that mechanical stress decreases cell proliferation which in turn reduces the efficacy of chemotherapeutics that target proliferating cells.
