In this talk I will discuss two models of cell motion. One assumes cells are ellipsoid and the other model makes no assumption about cell shape and focuses on cell adhesions. In the second model random switching terms are used to model the attachment and detachment of adhesions. In the first model formation the focus is on force and force transmission. In the second model the focus shifts to the dynamics of the adhesions and how they affect the cell speed.
