My current research is focused on adhesion of living and model cells. The adhesion of cells is a fundamental biological process with implications for functions ranging from tissue morphogenesis to immune response. Very often, the primary focus in cell adhesion research is on identifying the relevant adhesion proteins and signaling pathways. However, for a complete description, it is essential to also understand the physics underlying the processes that govern the adhesion. In order to study a complex phenomenon like cell adhesion, in-vitro experiments using cell mimetic systems are often useful since the experimental conditions can be better controlled. Moreover, the simplicity of such systems facilitates theoretical modeling. The insight gained from such bio-mimetic studies can then be applied to real cells. In my research, on one hand I try to make realistic models of adhering cells using giant unilamellar vesicles and on the other hand I study the adhesion of real cells under biomimetic conditions to assess the relevance of the vesicle models.

Parcours

Curriculum Vitae: Kheya Sengupta did her PhD in Bangalore with V. A, Raghunathan on liquid-crystalline phases of phospholipids. In 2001 she moved to the laboratory of Erich Sackmann in Munich with an Alexander von Humboldt fellowship. She studied bio-mimetic systems and contributed to the development of multi-wavelength RIC microscopy. In 2004 she moved to University of Pennsylvania, where she worked with Paul Janmey on cell mechanics and cell adhesion. In 2005 she came back to Germany as a research associate at the Forschungszentrum Julich in the laboratory of Rudolf Merkel, where she continued her work on adhesion and continued to improve RIC microscopy. In 2007 she was offered the position of a researcher of the National Scientific Research Council of France (CNRS) and moved to Marseilles. Her current interests include adhesion and mechanical properties of cells and cell mimetic model systems, and the interaction of such soft systems with nanoscale objects.
