Talk Abstract: The Kahn Lab investigates signaling pathways that regulate cardiovascular biology and diseases. We are interested in both lymphatic and blood vessel regulatory pathways, and in the interactions between blood cells and vascular endothelium. Most of the pathways we investigate are known to cause human vascular diseases. We apply vertebrate genetic approaches as well as biochemical and state of the art molecular approaches to understand the function of these pathways during normal development and in disease models.
