LYMPHATIC BIOLOGY IN HUMAN DISEASE
Grant number: 1053535 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
This proposal is for a team of researchers and clinicians to explore the molecular control of the lymphatic vasculature. This network of lymphatic vessels, located in organs throughout the body, is critical for regulation of tissue fluid and immune function. It will identify new molecular pathways controlling lymphatic vessels and their interactions with other cells in the body and identify new diagnostic approaches and molecular targets for medicines to treat human diseases including cancer.
