Throughout the body are many structures which are described as "tubular", that is they have a cellular wall with a hollow and generally fluid-filled core.
How do you make a "pipe" from cells, are there common mechanisms of this tube formation or a number of different ways of generating hollow structures? In research there does not seem to be a "tube research group", but a number of embryology and cell biology research laboratories are now looking at how cellular tubes form in their particular tissue of interest (heart, blood vessels, neural, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, kidney, genital).
