Intro:
Marie-Ange Renault’s research focuses on characterizing the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control the growth and maintenance of blood vessels under both physiological and pathological conditions in adults, with a particular attention devoted to the involvement of the Hedgehog signaling pathway. More recently, she also got interested in understanding the role of peripheral nerves in ischemic tissue revascularization. Her technical approaches mainly involve the use of transgenic mice (conditional KO mice), mouse models of angiogenesis and cell culture assays
