SPEAKER: Ondine Cleaver, Ph.D. Associate Professor Department of Molecular Biology UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas, TX

TITLE OF TALK: "Extrinsic and intrinsic forces at work during early blood vessel morphogenesis"

Research Interests: Molecular mechanisms of cell fate specification during blood vessel development and organogenesis More specifically, the focus of our research is the developing vascular endothelium. We want to answer the questions: how do tissues direct blood vessel patterning via angiogenic factors and, how does the endothelium, in turn, influence embryonic cell differentiation? Our hypothesis is that reciprocal signals underlie the coordinated growth of blood vessels and morphogenesis of organs, and that mutual signaling forms the basis for interdependent physiological relationships that last into adulthood. Understanding this endothelium-tissue crosstalk will be the focus of our research.
