Synopsis:

Dr. Huckle researchers intracellular signaling mechanisms relating to the development and function of the cardiovascular system.

Description:

Blood vessel production and arrangment in the human body is a huge factor in overall health. Dr. Huckle studies how cells in the cardiovascular system communicate with each other to develop blood vessels, particularly at the placenta stage. He also uses animal models to study organs most impacted by blood vessels, in oder to understand how certain diseases develop, including heart disease, macular degeneration, and cancerous tumors.
