Title: “Anticlastic surfaces for tissue growth, how 3D curvature influences cell and tissue

Living tissues can change both shape and size throughout an organism’s lifecycle via processes of active growth or passive swelling. Both aspects of tissue morphogenesis are known to be influenced by the physical constraints of the surrounding 3D environment, although the fundamental mechanisms that control them still remain unclear. Furthermore, it is likely that the shape of a substrate also plays an important role on the patterning of extracellular matrix components over long length scales. This presentation will illustrate how geometric constraints, and in particular the curvature of a substrate, influences tissue growth. We do this by producing novel, constant mean-curvature surfaces out of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), which can then be functionalised to allow for tissue culture. These surfaces are doubly curved (anticlastic) and as a consequence allow us to explore the role of competing curvature directions on the behaviour of cells. By combining observations from our tissue culture experiments with theoretical calculations we can demonstrate that tissues can be described as viscous fluids. In addition to learning about the fundamental biophysics of shape changes, it is hoped that the ideas stemming from such research can be used to design new optimised substrates for regenerative medicine.

Begin: 5 PM  / Venue: Leipzig University, Faculty of Life Sciences, Small Lecture Hall, Brüderstr. 34, 04103 Leipzig

The Module “Materials in Medicine” provides an introduction to basic concepts of cutaneous wound healing and the management of large soft tissue injuries in the context of diseases such as diabetes or cancer. Reconstructive surgical techniques, the use of biomaterials in medicine as well as novel potential drug targets in skin biology will be highlighted.
