Angiogenesis landmark publications

K14-VEGF-C transgenic mice with littermate

According to Nature, our Science paper from 1997 is a landmark paper for the angiogenesis field: "A paper establishing the role of VEGF-C and VEGF-R3 signaling in lymphangiogenesis. A new field is born."


From molecular biology to a causal treatment of lymphatic system disorders (abstract)

Research into the molecular basis of lymphangiogenesis in embryonic development and pathological processes has led to a rapid increase of our knowledge (Krebs and Jeltsch 2013A, 2013B). The molecular biology era of lymphatic research began with the discovery of the VEGF growth factors and their receptors 25 years ago, and these molecules are the focus of this overview.


Centrifugal and centripetal embryonic lymphatic development

Centrifugal versus centripetal hypothesis of lymphatic development

Since the beginning of last century, researchers have been arguing about the embryonic origin of the lymphatic system.

38. Annual Congress of the German Society for Lymphology

Die Molekularbiologie der Lymphangiogenese

I participated in the 38th Congress of the German Lymphological Society ( in Halle (Saale).


New Mechanisms of Lymphangiogenesis and Lymphedema

The blood and lymphatic vascular systems

Here is the presentation that I could not give, because my schedule was too tight to allow for a 1 hour 20 minute delay.
