Presentation

The cardiovascular system is a vital network that ensures the maintenance of organs and tissues by providing oxygen, nutrients and a number of important circulating factors.

We are interested in understanding the mechanisms by which cells and molecules maintain homeostasis, contribute to disease or promote regeneration in cardiovascular tissues.

Using zebrafish as a model system, we combine genetics, single-cell and live-imaging approaches to unravel how the same element can wield either a pro-regenerative or a pro-disease role within different contexts.
