    Charting the blueprints for future disease treatments through cell self-organisation

    06 / 05 / 2021

    Prize-winning ERC grantees Anna Akhmanova and Marileen Dogterom combined cutting-edge research in the fields of biophysics and biology to achieve a better understanding of how cells self-organise. Their findings could have far-reaching implications for our ability to manipulate cells and treat diseases such as cancer. In recent years, researchers have ...
