Leukocytes lost in translation

Leukocytes lost in translation
Pablo Vargas’ MOTILE team in the Bio6 Lab (IPGG/ Institut Curie) studies mechanisms by which leukocytes integrate chemical and physical signals of their surroundings to migrate in tissues. Their work aims to understand how manipulation of leukocyte motility could contribute to fight against tumors and cure immune disorders. For this, microfluidic tools developed at the IPGG are key to identify drugs that modulate immune cell migration in complex geometries.
