The concepts were developed for Cell magazine, top journal in the biomedical field, in conjunction with the publication of the article: “A Mechanical Checkpoint Controls Multicellular Growth through YAP/TAZ Regulation by Actin-Processing Factors”. The covers are the result of a process of visual and evocative translation of the concepts behind the conducted research and experiments. The research was conducted by scientists Mariaceleste Aragona, Tito Panciera, Andrea Manfrin, Stefano Giulitti, Federica Michielin, Nicola Elvassore, Sirio Dupont and Stefano Piccolo, of the Biomedical Sciences Department of the University of Padua.
