Benjamin Hogan

 

Ben Hogan's research investigates the lymphatic vasculature and the blood brain barrier, which play important roles in cancer metastasis and vascular disease. His research team studies developmental processes using zebrafish and mouse embryos.

Work from his group has led to discovery and characterisation of a number of genes essential for angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. In particular, he investigates molecular mechanisms controlling the CCBE1/VEGFC/VEGFR3 signalling axis, uses large scale forward genetic screening and examines the cellular processes involved in vessel formation in live tissues. His group is located between the Petermac and the University of Melbourne. Professor Hogan is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and his work is currently funded by grants from the NHMRC, ARC and Bright Focus Foundation (USA).
