Program in Angiogenesis

Angiogenesis refers to the development of new blood vessels which is a necessary component of many body functions, but when deregulated can cause disease, such as the formation of choroidal neovascular membranes in age-related macular degeneration. The program in Angiogenesis Research is composed of investigators working to understand the regulation of new blood vessel growth in the eye, under normal and abnormal conditions. As vision loss in several important eye diseases is caused by abnormal new blood vessel growth, a goal of this work is to identify factors that could be used to treat these conditions by inhibiting
angiogenesis.
