I have studied in dissecting the physical and molecular determinants of lymphatic vessel function and lymphangiogenesis in both normal and disease states. I will continue to understand the mechanisms of cancer dissemination through lymphatic vessels and subsequent growth in lymph nodes. Through the use of the intravital imaging technologies and animal models, I will answer timely questions that can lead to the development of treatments for lymphatic metastasis and lymphedema.

Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
