Molecular cues guiding cell dynamics during pathological blood vessel sprouting (2018)

Abstract:
The controlled growth of blood vessels is dependent on the coordination of movement and adhesion between cells in the vessel wall. This project will unravel the precise mechanisms by which cells interact and adhere to each other, and their surroundings, during diseased vessel growth. These results will provide a detailed understanding of the mechanisms mediating adhesion during vessel sprouting, allowing for the development of new therapies for multiple diseases including diabetes and cancer.
