Our current research work is focused on understanding the signaling pathways regulating the functions of perivascular cells (pericytes and smooth muscle cells) in developmental, physiological and pathological conditions. We are especially interested in the role of pericytes in tumor angiogenesis, vascular retinopathies, arteriovenous malformations, and fibrosis.
