Our current research has been focused on the molecular mechanisms of a new ligand-receptor pair, Nogo-B and Nogo-B receptor (NgBR), in regulating endothelial cell migration and blood vessel formation during embryo development and tumor growth. In addition, we are establishing in vitro and in vivo models to dissect the molecular mechanisms of endothelial cells interacting with microenvironment niche during vasculogenesis and angiogenesis, and developing therapeutic approaches to modulate Nogo-B/NgBR functions.
