Otger Campàs will start in July 2021 and hold the Chair of Tissue Dynamics at PoL. He will lead the Physics of Embryonic Self-Organization and Morphogenesis group, an interdisciplinary team bridging physics, biology and engineering to study the how cells self-organize to build embryonic structures. The group combines experimental, theoretical and computational methods to study the physical nature of active multicellular systems, the emergence of biological shape, as well as the interplay between genetics and physics to shape embryonic tissues and organs, with the overreaching goal of reveling fundamental differences between living and inert matter.
