Unravelling the cell biology of a blood vessel (2018–2020)

Abstract:
This proposal aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of vascular regeneration in adult homeostasis. Maintaining a viable circulatory system is essential for organ survival and function, however the biology and differentiation capacity of vascular stem cells is not entirely elucidated. The data generated from this proposal has the capacity to significantly impact our fundamental understanding of cardiovascular repair and regeneration. This fundamental understanding of cardiovascular biology will be of future benefit to many industries including science, bioengineering and healthcare technologies, ensuring significant economic outcomes and benefit the Australian community.
