Since its inauguration in January 2019, the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1366 “Vascular Control of Organ Function” aims at studying emerging gatekeeper and regulatory functions of organotypically differentiated endothelial cells and other cells of the vessels wall during develop-ment, homeostasis and disease.
The CRC 1366 takes a leading role in the emerging field of “Angioscience” research, i.e., the molecular and functional analysis of vascular control mechanisms of organ function. Considering the involvement of vascular dysfunction in numerous chronic and life-threatening diseases, the better molecular understanding of organotypic vasculatures will lay the scientific foundation to pave the way towards novel angiotargeted therapies to treat hitherto intractable diseases.
