  • Cell life is highly dependent on its adaptability to the microenvironment,
    including sensing and responding the physical cues transduced from
    extracellular matrix (ECM) or adjacent cells. My research interests are
    focusing on how mechanical force is generated and transmitted through focal
    adhesome and cell-cell junctional complexes during vascular development,
    especially in angiogenesis, vessel maturation and aortic tolerance to fluid
    shear stress. Reveal of potential mechanisms will probably contribute to
    rescue relevant pathological conditions, for example vascular inflammation
    and aneurysm.
