EMBO Young Investigator
Our laboratory focuses on blood vessels, particularly the regulation of blood vessel growth (angiogenesis) by metabolism. We study how endothelial cells (ECs) sense their metabolic microenvironment and how they use this information to build vessels of tissue-specific size, shape and function. We are also interested in the metabolism of ECs, aiming to understand how changes in endothelial bioenergetics impact vascular growth and homeostasis.
