We are studying the molecular signaling mechanisms underlying angiogenesis and vascular quiescence by performing fluorescence-based bio-imaging analysis using zebrafish as a model animal. Our current research interests are the mechanism of angiogenesis in wound healing, the role of pericytes in angiogenesis and vascular quiescence, and mechanical regulation of angiogenesis. Besides, we are also studying the signaling pathways involved in regulation of endothelial permeability, especially focusing on vascular endothelial-cadherin-mediated endothelial cell-cell junctions.
