Cell Physics, Understanding How Biological Matter Self-Organises – The Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1027 at the Saarland University

Sep 21, 2018 | biology, physical sciences

The Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1027 at the Saarland University in Saarbrücken and Homburg is an interdisciplinary research team that aims to achieve a quantitative understanding of the physical mechanisms at work when biological matter self-organises into complex structures. Such self-organisation allows biological systems to perform dynamic functions including cell migration and polarisation, cell-cell adherence and synaptic transmission, biofilm formation and tissue growth.
