Role of TSP-2
My laboratory is also focused on elucidating the mechanism through which the endogenous inhibitor of angiogenesis TSP-2 limits angiogenesis and arteriogenesis.

Molecular Events in the Foreign Body Response
When biomaterial and medical devices are surgically implanted into the body, a series of molecular and cellular events lead to its encapsulation and isolation from surrounding tissue. This series of events is known as the Foreign Body Reaction (FBR) and can limit the device's overall biocompatibility and function. Every foreign surface first acquires a protein coat when within the body, composed of fibrinogen, albumin, fibronectin and other blood and interstitial-fluid proteins.
