Research

research overview

  • Blood vessels mediate a wide range of essential biological functions, especially in transport and physiological integration, induction of developmental programs, and maintenance of stem cell niches. Furthermore, the progression of prevalent human diseases - for instance solid cancers and vascular diseases of the retina - depends on processes of neovascularization. Dr. Junge's laboratory integrates molecular and protein-biochemical methods, cell biology, mouse genetics and tissue analysis to understand the signaling pathways and developmental processes that mediate angiogenesis, vascular guidance and vascular quiescence.
