Our ultimate goal is to control blood vessels formation for vascular regenerative therapy as well as angiogenic inhibition in cancer. Vascular endothelial stem cells, which reside within the peripheral blood vessels, are the key factor in angiogenesis, and we are aiming at their isolation by identification of cell specific markers through single cell technologies.
