"Motile & Metabolic Signaling from the Mechanical Microenvironment"

As cells move, they sense the mechanical properties of their surroundings and use that information to maintain or change their direction. In this talk, you’ll hear about recent investigations of second-messenger and energy-sensing signaling pathways through which migrating cells respond to changes in their mechanical microenvironment.
