Research synopsis: 

Although I no longer accept thesis students, I maintain an active research program.

Work in the lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that control cellular growth and differentiation during development or disease. Using the vasculature as a model system for in vitro and in vivo studies, we implement morphologic, biochemical and molecular genetic approaches. Experimental results should yield important new insights into the molecular and cellular regulators that control cell migration and division, angiogenesis and hypertension or wound healing.
