The Mentzer Lab investigates the adaptive processes involved in blood vessel growth (angiogenesis) and lung regeneration. The study of these processes involves a multi-scale approach: 1) the regulated expression of genes and molecules, 2) the interactive signaling communication between cells, and 3) the structural relationships leading to adult tissue remodeling (morphogenesis). The focus of our laboratory are processes fundamental to normal tissue repair and regeneration; the perturbation of these processes is a major contributor to lung disease and lung cancer.
