Abstract: 
Blood vessels control organ function during health and disease through instructive (angiocrine) signaling mechanisms. They thereby serve as critical gatekeeper of local and systemic homeostasis and are decisive for lifespan and healthspan. The Augustin lab (www.augustinlab.de) studies angiocrine signaling mechanisms during the life cycle of a vasculature (blood vessel formation, assembly, maturation, quiescence, regression, aging) with a particular focus on tumor-vessel interactions that govern tumor progression and metastasis. Basic discovery research feeds translational research with the goal of identifying and validating novel therapeutic targets as well as laying the preclinical proof-of-concept for novel treatment modalities and therapeutic windows, including neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy.
