Welcome to the Pang Lab
Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from existing ones, is a critical event for tissue development and repair, as well as being associated with many diseases (e.g. bronchopulmonary dysplasia(BPD), pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH), ischemic cardiomyopathy, retinopathy and tumor growth). Newly formed and pre-existing vessels are continuously under dynamic remodeling (including vessel regression, neointima formation and artery-vein specification) to accustom to changes of mechanic force, oxygen level, metabolites and inflammatory factors et al. The long-term goal of Dr. Pang’s lab is to illustrate the molecular mechanisms of angiogenesis and vascular remodeling under physiological and pathological conditions.
