I am interested in the function of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) in the vascular system and in cancer. CDK5 is generally known as regulator of CNS development, function and disease. We could recently show that CDK5, beyond the nervous system, regulates the migration of endothelial cells. Currently, we are investigating the role of CDK5 in angiogenesis during development and tumor growth and we analyze the impact of CDK5 on tumor cells. For our studies, we use various cell-based techniques as well as mouse models.
