Our group explores the physics of blood rheology with a multi-scale approach, problems linking red blood cells membrane mechanics to their flow in complex microcirculatory and macrocirculatory situations. We use high-speed video-microscopy, sate-of-the-art force measurement techniques (micropipettes, optical tweezers, rheometer...), as well as microfluidics approaches to ask fundamental questions about blood flow both in health and in diseases.
