Development of enabling technologies to study the interaction between lymphangiogenesis and inflammation

  • Lymphangiogenesis

Lymphatic vessels have an important role in inflammation and are considered as potential therapeutic targets for inflammatory pathologies. In this project, dual in silico/in vitro approaches will be used to investigate the interplay between lymphangiogenesis and inflammation. We will first develop a virtual lymphatic endothelial cell (LEC) model to investigate the effect of inflammation on the intracellular regulation of the cells. In addition, we will develop an agent-based model representing the LECs, immune actors and the inflamed media interactions. A counterpart in vitro model will be developed using microfluidic chips.
