Understanding Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms Leading to Blood Vessel Formation
Our laboratory is specifically interested in the regulation of vascular cell commitment, differentiation and cell cycle progression, and defining signaling pathways that modulate these processes. We also aim to understand how some vascular cells acquire specialized functions, such as the generation and/or maintenance of multi-lineage stem/progenitor cells.
