Abstract: We generate model wounds by using an original microfabrication‐based technique based on a microstencil that masks portions of the surface during the growth of a monolayer. Removing the stencil at the confluence of epithelial MDCK cells does not damage the border cells but triggers the collective motility of the epithelium, while cells maintain strong adhesions between them. By using hydrodynamics derived techniques such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), based on the correlations between successive images, we observe that this collective motility involves long-range coordinated displacements of large groups of cells well within the monolayer. This observation contradicts the commonly accepted view in which only the border cells are affected.
