Shape is a fundamental property of biological systems that underlies the function of organs and tissues. Numerous studies have delineated the roles of mechanical stress and mechanical properties in the control of shape changes. However, our understanding of the contribution of the initial cell or tissue geometry to subsequent morphogenesis lags behind. During my talk, I will explore the role of cell and tissue geometry in morphogenesis by addressing the following two questions: How cell size influences cell stiffness and tissue elongation, and how tissue curvature modulates tissue folding. Thereby, my seminar will delineate the basic principles by which given cell and tissue geometry influences tissue morphogenesis.
