Jin Lab

My laboratory is interested in understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate developmental and pathological angiogenesis, using zebrafish as a model system. Currently our major efforts are directed at analyzing the function of Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signaling during vascular patterning, investigating interaction between endothelial and hematopoietic lineages during development, and analyzing molecular and cellular defects of vascular specific mutations.
