This award supports the investigation of aspects of lymphatic vessel physiology, development and pathophysiology related to health and diseases of the digestive system. Studies may focus on understanding the factors that control local lymphatic vessel functional anatomy and physiology and development during health or disease in this system and its organs, and the mechanisms by which alterations of lymphatic vessel function affect organ function.
This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.
