Scholarship Description: Large cellular populations fulfill all necessary criteria to be considered a complex system; constituent cells are vast in number, they are heterogeneous in physical, biological function and they interact with neighbours and the surrounding environment in a nonlinear manner.  Adherence to these criteria promotes the formation of emergent behaviour at the cellular; significant examples include embryo development, tissue regeneration during wound healing and the proliferation of metastatic diseases. The aim of this PhD studentship is to further develop our understanding of the mechanisms that underlie emergent behaviour of large cellular systems.
