Molecular and Cellular mechanisms in Angiogenesis

As a physiological process involving the formation of new blood vessels from existing vasculature, angiogenesis is a complex biological phenomenon, crucial during development and growth of complex organisms. The workshop will focus on molecular factors and multiple cellular elements, mainly inflammatory cells, involved in new vessel formation. Among the model systems of pathological angiogenesis, attention will be focused on cancer and ocular neovascularization. The latest advancements in therapeutic approaches to control neovascularization will be presented.
