Press Release: Carl-Philipp Heisenberg group detects mechanism in cell division relevant for closing wounds Quote: How do cells spread to cover and close a wound? A team of researchers led by IST Austria Professor Carl-Philipp Heisenberg, including first author Pedro Campinho, PhD student in the Heisenberg group, publishes new insights into epithelial cell spreading in the current online edition of Nature Cell Biology. Spreading of the epithelial cell layer is fundamental for epithelial closure and wound healing, as well as for embryonic development.
