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. Scientists are alsotrying to develop proteins to inhibit HIF for the treatment of cancers and blinding eye diseases.
