Our skin is an important barrier to pathogens, radiation, chemical or physical damage. To maintain this barrier function, as well as immune surveillance, thermoregulation and wound healing activities, the skin needs a densely knit network of vessels that controls the flow of blood and lymph. The exchange of fluid, molecules and cells between blood and surrounding tissue is tightly controlled. We investigate blood vessels in the skin and search for ways to support vascular function in disease.
