The Vascular Biology laboratory aims to investigate the impact of blood vessels (BVs) on various physiological and pathological conditions. We apply basic techniques in cellular and molecular biology, in vitro cell culture systems, in vivo mouse models as well as various bioinformatics tools, to understand how vasculature contributes to heterogeneity, cellular rewiring, and metabolic reprogramming in cancer, aging, and several other diseases. Our research is focused on uncovering the genetic, epigenetic, and metabolic underpinnings of metabolic niches that result in therapeutic resistance in primarily neoplastic masses as well as other pathological conditions that involve a dysregulated vascular network. The long-term goal of this lab is to dissect the role of BVs in cancer and other disease pathologies and identify novel targets for designing potential therapeutic avenues.
