Marileen Dogterom lab

Welcome to the Marileen Dogterom group in the Department of Bionanoscience in the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology.

The assembly, force generation and organization of cytoskeletal polymers lies at the basis of many essential cellular processes. The research objective of this group is to gain a quantitative understanding of the physics behind these cytoskeleton-based processes. This is achieved through a combination of in vitro experiments in simplified physically and biochemically controlled microfabricated environments, theoretical modelling and, increasingly, experiments in living cells.
