Vascular biology and development

Discovering the unexpected through forward genetic screens

The distribution of blood cells, hormones and essential nutrients throughout our bodies is dependent on the function of a healthy circulatory system.

The formation of the fascinating network of vessels that permeate our major organs is of fundamental interest in biology. The vasculature is also centrally important in cardiovascular diseases and in cancer progression.

The Hogan Group aims to better understand how the vasculature forms during development and to translate their findings into a deeper understanding of disease.The Hogan Group studies several aspects of vascular development and biology.
