The formation of a functional patterned vascular network is essential for development, tissue growth and organ physiology. Several human vascular disorders arise from the mis-patterning of blood vessels, such asarteriovenous malformations, aneurysms and diabetic retinopathy. Although blood flow is recognised as a

stimulus for vascular patterning, very little is known about the molecular mechanisms that regulate endothelial cell behaviour in response to flow and promote vascular patterning. The projects centring research on the following topics:

- Understand the dynamic behaviour of endothelial cells in vascular patterning.

- Control vascular patterning by regulating flow-mediated polarisation of endothelial cells.

- Identify novel regulators of flow-dependent endothelial cell polarisation.
