Summary

Sculpture Lessons: How the Zebrafish Shapes its Vessels

We study the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate the formation and function of blood and lymphatic vessels using the transparent zebrafish embryo as our primary model system. We use the following techniques: confocal imaging, gene expression analysis, forced gene expression, transgenesis, genome editing, cell transplantation, cell culture, and biochemistry.
