Wihuri Research Institute Special Seminar by Dr. Taija Mäkinen

The multifaceted role and regulation of the lymphatic vascular system in development and disease

Dr. Taija Mäkinen’s lab’s research interests lie in the understanding of mechanisms that regulate the lymphatic vasculature in development, homeostasis and disease. A major interest of her laboratory is to elucidate how (lymphatic) endothelial cells integrate signals from multiple sources in a complex tissue environment to coordinate vascular morphogenesis and functional specialization. Recently their work has extended to studying how endothelial cells actively modulate their environment through intercellular communication with other cell types, and how regulators of developmental (lymph)angiogenesis impact on genetic human diseases.
