Center for Lung and Vascular Biology
research in the lab is directed toward understanding the molecular
mechanisms of lung and vascular diseases and providing novel therapeutic
approaches for these complex human diseases employing the state-of-art
technologies such as genetically modified mouse models of human
diseases and endothelial progenitor cells/stem cells-mediated endothelial
repair. The lab is mainly focused on the following three projects:
1) the essential role of FoxM1 in endothelial repair following
vascular injury; 2) the potential role of caveolin-1-regulated
eNOS in the mechanism of lung diseases such as pulmonary hypertension;
3) the role of adiponectin signaling in vascular inflammation and
acute lung injury.
