Tumor cell migration through 3D tissue depends on a physicochemical balance between tissue constraints, contact-dependent ECM degradation, and deformability of cell and nucleus, respectively. With a focus on lamin- and chromatin-mediated mechanics of the cell nucleus, I will dissect the relative contributions of these parameters under conditions of space confinement in substrate geometries that mimick connective tissue structures in vivo.
