Our team aims to elucidate molecular, cellular and mechanical mechanisms that govern blood vessel formation. Using the zebrafish as a model, we plan to investigate how the physical forces of blood flow (haemodynamic forces) regulate processes such as lumen formation and vessel patterning. We subsequently intend to transfer our findings from developmental angiogenesis in the zebrafish to on-chip vascularization of kidney organoids in collaboration with Dr. Minoru Takasato and Dr. Ryuji Yokokawa, with the aim of improving the current state of kidney organoid vascularization.
