Wellcome – UCL

Vascular endothelial growth factor to develop new therapeutic approaches;
Mechanisms of angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation);

Experiments into artery and muscle damage and repair on mice, where blood vessels are stopped and pinched, then scheduled observation of how the vessels either repaired themselves and/or were diverted to maintain circulation. Here, cutting into the neck, getting access to the vessels, and cleaning the wound, produced a by product, a small ‘kiss’ of blood on a swab, much like dabbing excess lipstick off the mouth.
