Descriptor of Research
We have a dual investigative strategy. One is the study of neovascularization mediated by HIF-1. The second is neovascularization regulation by each mTOR complex, mTORC1 and mTORC2 in microvessel endothelial cells. While our work was in tumor neovascularization, we are also exploring embryonic developmental vascularization/angiogenesis and adult neovascularization as related to diabetes.
