Blood vessels in physiology and disease

My expertise is in endothelial cell signaling driven by the family of VEGF and VEGF receptors, in regulation of vessel physiology and vessel engagement in disease. A particular interest is in the regulation of vascular permeability, establishment of edema, and the cross-communication between the blood and lymphatic vasculature. Disease models in mice include retinopathies and cancer.

Keywords: Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor / signaling / angiogenesis / vascular permeability / cancer
