Tissue contraction, scarring and mechanoregulation

Baily, Maryse

Maryse Bailly is a Reader in Cell Biology at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. Her main research focuses on the identification of the molecular mechanisms that underlie tissue contraction and fibrosis, with a specific focus on the role of mechanoregulation and how cells use the remodelling of their actin cytoskeleton to interact with their environment. The lab's current interests broadly fall under three areas: 1) Mechanisms of fibroblast-mediated contraction during normal wound healing; 2) Molecular mechanisms underlying fibrotic diseases in the eye; and 3) Tensional homeostasis, mechanical stress and regulation of tissue biomechanics through the SRF/MRTFA transcription pathway.

She obtained a PhD in tumour biology from the University Claude Bernard Lyon I (France). Following two postdoctoral studies at the Léon Bérard Cancer Centre in Lyon, and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York), she joined the Institute of Ophthalmology as a UCL lecturer in 2001.
