Principal Investigator

Suhrid Ghosh

Research interests:

1) how do morphogens regulate patterns of cellular metabolic and mechanical properties in tissue? 2) how does tissue size and shape emerge from the collective interactions of these constituent cells? 3) how do molecular, cellular and tissue-scale processes remain coordinated at different temperatures? 4) how do Drosophila acclimate to different temperatures in the lab and in the wild?

Research organisms:

Drosophila melanogaster.

Expertise:

Genetics, lipidomics, cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, long term time lapse imaging, quantitative image analysis, modeling.
