Interstitial fluid, extracellular matrix and tissue microenvironment form the foundations for our research. We study their role in local control of transcapillary exchange under normal conditions and disease (inflammation, fibrosis and neoplastic conditions).
Master’s Thesis projects
Our group provides several interesting topics for the degree MSc.
We study the capillary exchange into the interstitium, the interstitial fluid and the lymphatic system and the role of the extracellular matrix in disease models such as fibrosis, neoplastic conditions, the microenvironment and responses to normoxia, hyper- and hypoxia.
Recent knowledge regarding fluid constituting the body's microenvironment gives new diagnostic possibilities.
Probes for molecular imaging of renal function with MRI and PET is developed.
We study the circulation and fluid exchange in normal skin and muscle, kidney, heart, oral tissues and tumors. Our approach is integrative and translational using animal and cellular models for human disease.
