Title: Self-organising planar polarity in a simple epithelium

The Strutt group is interested in the genetic control of animal development and how cells interact to build complex tissues and organs. They focus on the particular problem of how cells coordinate their polarity within developing tissues, and as a model study the phenomenon of planar polarity in epithelia of the fruitfly Drosophila.
