Dr Lisica's research is interested in the mechanics of cell division in tissues. The correct orientation of cell division is essential for cell fate decisions during development and misorientation can cause diseases such as cancer. Several mechanisms of division orientation have been characterised recently, however it remains unclear how these molecular mechanisms respond to mechanical forces that tissues are exposed to. By using suspended epithelial monolayers, an experimental system previously developed in the lab, she hopes to gain insight into the dynamics of cell division in tissues under stress.
