To deciphere the mechanisms of blood vessel growth and endothelial metabolic crosstalk in the muscle following exercise and/or muscle injury.

This lecture is part of the Interdisciplinary Medical and Health Seminars. Guest speaeker: Associate Professor Katrien De Bock

The laboratory of Associate Professor Katrien De Bock focuses its research on investigating how endothelial cells rewire their metabolism during angiogenesis and how endothelial cells communicate with other cells in their microenvironment to maintain or establish organ homeostasis. Specific interest goes to deciphering mechanisms of blood vessel growth and endothelial metabolic crosstalk in the muscle following exercise and/or muscle injury. In this seminar, she will also discuss her recent work on the role of the ATF4 transcription factor in exercise-induced angiogenesis.
