Scientific summary

Marie Ouarné focuses her research on vascular biology. She has a profound interest in unveiling the mechanisms regulating blood vessel formation, remodeling, and maintenance as defects in any of these phenomena can lead to severe diseases. She studies angiogenesis using various models to understand its different aspects.  During her PhD, she focused on BMP9 and BMP10 roles in the closure of the ductus and in breast cancer vascularization. Then, she studied arteriovenous shunts formation and resolution and the role of Rab6 in postnatal retinal angiogenesis. Currently, she is focusing on Wnt pathway in vessel organization and function.
