Michael Simons

Simons Lab

The major areas of research in my laboratory include the regulation of arterial development and branching morphogenesis, the regulation of vascular maintenance, Syndecan-4 signaling, and endothelial signaling and metabolism. Emerging areas of research include the role of Raf1 and MAPK signaling in regulation of arterial specification and the activation of arteriogenesis in arteriogenesis-resistant states.
