Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Understanding tissue development, tissue homeostasis and what goes wrong in these processes during tumorigenesis, requires knowledge of the kinetics of multiple, molecular pathways in individual cells while cells are in their tissue context. This review outlines progress and future directions necessary in quantitative microscopy for gaining this knowledge, using the mammary gland as a model system.
