Dr. Julia Sero is a Lecturer in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry and a member of the Centre for Therapeutic Innovation at Bath. Julia is broadly interested in mechanotransduction, the processes by which cells sense, respond to, and generate physical forces. These processes play fundamental roles in development, wound healing, aging, and diseases like cancer. Julia’s work focuses on the structures and signalling pathways that organize cell shape, movement, growth, and death using high-content automated image analysis to measure hundreds of parameters from millions of individual cells that are exposed to different environments, treated with drugs, and/or genetically modified. As an IMI Fellow, Julia will integrate quantitative biological imaging with cutting-edge mathematics to gain insight into diverse systems, from cancer therapeutics to tissue engineering to nanotechnology.
