Lake Como School on Advances in Complex Systems: from Ecology to Economics
22 Jul 2019 - 26 Jul 2019 • Como, Italy
Abstract:
This is the third school on Advances in Complex Systems. The first edition of the school took place in the summer of 2015 and the second edition in the summer of 2017. The scope of the school series is to present recent advances in complex systems discussing applications of statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium and disordered systems, theories of complex networks and other stochastic systems to different topics in materials science, social sciences, biology and biomedical research. The broad choice of interdisciplinary topics is designed to expose the students to some of the multiple facets of complex systems theory. The 2019 edition of the school will focus on inderdisciplinary and quantitative approaches that span from ecology to economics. The school is open to 40 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows working in complex systems and related fields.

The Mechanics of Cell Aggregates: Experiments and Models
03 Sep 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • Turin, Italy
Abstract:
The interest in cell aggregates is nowadays undergoing a strong acceleration because of the coincidence of technical advancements and experimental insights that excite theoretical challenges. In this respect, systems of great relevance are multicellular spheroids, where it is now possible to locally measure stress and fluid flow within the aggregate, thereby opening the path to quantitative theories to explain the role of mechanics in cell proliferation and motility. There is a well supported evidence that mechanical forces interfere with the development of solid tumors and arrest their proliferation. The coupling between cell mechanics, fluid flows, extra-cellular matrix and cell proliferation is however not trivial: malignant cells exhibit a complex rheology that accompanies an elusive mechanobiological feedback. Intriguingly, the role of fluid flows and stress is understood to be crucial in other cell aggregates, of completely different functionality: embryos exploit mechanics to generate shape and function, both in producing displacement such as lumen formation and in signaling cell-to-cell mutual positions and orientations.
Topics:
tumor spheroids, embryos, single cell mechanics, monolayers, collective cell migration
