Mathematics Colloquium: From Crawlers to Swimmers – Mathematical and Computational Problems in Cell Motility

January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, Room E495, 3200 North Cramer St.
Milwaukee, WI 53211 United States

Cell locomotion is essential for early development, angiogenesis, tissue regeneration, the immune response and wound healing in multicellular organisms, and it plays a very deleterious role in cancer metastasis in humans. Locomotion involves the detection and transduction of extracellular chemical and mechanical signals, integration of the signals into an intracellular signal and the spatio-temporal control of the intracellular biochemical and mechanical responses that lead to force generation, morphological changes and directed movement. We will discuss some of the mathematical and…

Science Bag: Microbes in Motion

January 27 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bacteria have evolved elaborate machines to swim through liquids and to crawl over surfaces. Some construct tiny rotary motors that turn flagella. These function as propellers to allow them to swim. Others extend and retract adhesive filaments called pili to pull themselves over surfaces. Still others propel themselves with miniature tank treads. This show will explore their ingenious strategies, how they control their movements, and the experimental approaches used to study this miniature "traffic." Join Mark McBride, professor of biological…
