Angiogenesis

Judah Folkman (1933-2008) pioneered the field of angiogenesis and its role in pathology, such as in cancer. Angiogenesis is a complex process of many steps. The zebrafish is a good model for analyzing the molecular basis of vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. Dorsal root ganglia (DRG) are a good example of the interactions of blood vessels and neurons.
