Marina has a degree in physics from the University of Buenos Aires and her project is focused on gastrulation mechanobiology. Using Light Sheet and confocal microscopy she observes and quantifies tissue flow. By perturbing the embryo with photomanipulation techniques, she assesses the nature of the morphogenetic events happening during gastrulation in a multi-scale approach, and the interplay of physical forces involved. In her free time, she enjoys doing sports, reading, dancing and painting.
