Lendert gives a talk at the SIAM conference on Application of Dynamical Systems in Portland, US

Lendert has shared the recent work of our lab at the biannual SIAM conference on the application of dynamical systems which took place in Portland, US, between the 14th and 18th of May 2023. In his talk titled, ‘Nuclei Serve as Pacemakers to Coordinate the Cell Cycle in Space and Time’ he discussed our recent experimental and modeling efforts to understand how biochemical oscillations and waves form in the cytoplasm of the X. laevis frog, and how they help organize the cell division cycle. Here, especially nuclei are shown to function as pacemakers, regions which oscillate faster than its surroundings, synchronizing the whole medium and ensuring the proper coordination of cell division.
