Intracellular polarization, where cells segregate specific factors to specify a spatial axis, is a fundamental and highly concerned biological process. Despite the importance of polarization, we don’t fully understand how proteins reorganize spatially. In this talk, I will show how we can use numerical and analytical approaches to better understand how polarization is initiated and how the geometry of the cell may play a role in the establishment of spatial patterns.
