Research interests

The Fang lab employ zebrafish and mouse models to studying the role of lipid metabolism in angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. During his postdoctoral studies at UC San Diego, Dr. Fang discovered that apolipoprotein (apoA-I) binding protein (AIBP) controls angiogenesis via regulation of cholesterol homeostasis.Based upon the findings, the Fang laboratory will be focusing on the role of AIBP-regulated lipid metabolism in angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. We will use a plethora of disease models such as heart hypertrophy, heart ischemia and reperfusion, peripheral artery ischemia and reperfusion, corneal angiogenesis, and tumorigenesis in mice as well as in zebrafish heart regeneration. Both zebrafish and mouse model will be used to study the role of AIBP in lymphangiogenesis.
