Title: How to divide in epithelial tissue during morphogenesis

The Bellaiche interdisciplinary research group, composed of biologists and physicists, studies the development of epithelial tissue and the specification of distinct cell fates upon asymmetric cell division in Drosophila. Their work on asymmetric cell division has unravelled mechanisms regulating cortical cell polarity and mitotic spindle orientation. This work has also provided an experimental and conceptual foundation with which to study epithelial tissue development.
