Dynamical basis for self-stabilizing cell polarity in embryonic cells.


We combine models and experiments to study how embryonic cells form and stabilize polarity in response to transient cues. In this talk, I will summarize our understanding of how dynamic self-stabilizing cortical polarities emerge from a system of mechanochemical feedback loops that couple local biochemical signaling, cytoskeletal assembly dynamics and cell mechanics.
