Research interests

My research focuses on the use of zebrafish to study regulatory pathways that control new blood vessel growth (angiogenesis).  Formation of new blood vessels is necessary for cancer development to provide oxygen and nutrients to the tumour.  Understanding the intricate interplay of regulatory pathways that governs new blood vessel growth will help in finding new therapies for cancer.
