Research Focus

Research in our lab focuses on identifying signaling pathways that control blood vessel growth. Modulation of blood vessel growth could potentially be used to treat a wide variety of diseases, including ischemic cardiovascular disease and cancer. However, greater understanding of the mechanisms controlling blood vessel growth is needed before such treatments can achieve their full potential. Current research in our lab is focused on characterizing the signaling pathways that regulate expression of placenta growth factor (PLGF), a protein that stimulates blood vessel growth.
