Primary Research:

Our research focuses on the fundamental mechanisms that govern the development, maintenance, and regeneration of a functional lymphatic vasculature. We also investigate the involvement of lymphatic vessels in organ-specific physiology and disease processes. Currently located at Uppsala University in Sweden, the lab is relocating to Finland to join the vascular biology community at the Wihuri Research Institute and the University of Helsinki in 2024-2025.
