Immunophysiology: The involvement of the immune system in angiogenesis, inflammation and homeostasis

My laboratory delineates different functions of various and discrete subsets of immune cells during inflammation and tissue restitution following injury as well as during homeostasis and development. Our current research focuses at delineating how immune cells in the circulation are recruited to the site of inflammation, as well as elucidating the role of macrophages and neutrophils in the formation of new and functional blood vessels in hypoxic tissues. We also investigate the gut-bacterial crosstalk, as well as try to find means to steer immune cell functions to accelerate healing of wounds in the skin or in the gastrointestinal mucosa.
