The Vascular Biology program studies the development of new blood vessels, working to uncover where stem cells go and what they do once transplanted into the body. Specific projects are looking to engineer cells and scaffolding biomaterials to make cell therapies detectable in the body after transplant using MRI, ultrasound or other imaging toolsfor conditions like diabetes, cancer and stroke. Additional studies are investigating the role of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs)proteins that regulate oxygen consumptionin the maintenance of cancer stem cells within breast tumors and the ability of cancer cells to evade the immune system.

The European Vascular Biology Organisation (EVBO) was launched in 2006, after discussion between European vascular biologists who recognised that there is a need for a democratic society to provide a united focus and forum for vascular biologists in Europe, primarily by organising conferences but also by maintaining and enhancing an interactive network of researchers; evolving from the experience of the previous European Vascular Biology Association and building on the achievements of the FP6 European Vascular Genomics Network (EVGN). EVBO will support presenting junior EVBO members with ten awards (500/award) for the IVBM meeting in Seoul, Korea 9-12th Sept 2020. Mark apply on the Travel Awards section when submitting your abstract online. Continue reading
