Welcome to the Berro lab!

The Berro lab is interested in how forces are produced and sensed at the molecular scale in cells. Our research is currently focused on unraveling how the molecular machinery of clathrin-mediated endocytosis generates forces to deform the plasma membrane and conversely how this machinery senses membrane tension and adapts to it. To answer these questions, the labĀ  develops new experimental and computational quantitative methods for cell biology, biochemistry and biophysics.
