Research: I am interested in understanding how spatiotemporal regulation of VEGFR1 modulates sprouting angiogenesis. Currently, I am working to understand the trafficking machinery involved in soluble VEGFR1 secretion and determining whether soluble VEGFR1 secretion is polarized in endothelial cells.
