    • A 3D finite element model of ventral furrow invagination in the Drosophila melanogaster embryo 

      Conte, Vito; Muñoz Romero, José; Miodownik, Mark (2008-04)
      Article
      Open Access
      The paper describes a mechanical model of epithelial tissue development in Drosophila embryos to investigate a buckling phenomenon called invagination. The finite element method is used to model this ventral furrow formation ...
    • Stress relaxation in epithelial monolayers is controlled by the actomyosin cortex 

      Khalilgharibi, Nargess; Fouchard, Jonathan; Asadipour, Nina; Barrientos, Ricardo; Duda, Maria; Bonfanti, Alessandra; Yonis, Amina; Harris, Andrew; Mosaffa, Payman; Fujita, Yasuyuki; Kabla, Alexandre; Mao, Yanlan; Baum, Buzz; Muñoz Romero, José; Miodownik, Mark; Charras, Guillaume (2019-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Epithelial monolayers are one-cell thick tissue sheets that separate internal and external environments. As part of their function, they have to withstand extrinsic mechanical stresses applied at high strain rates. However, ...
