Angiogenesis

Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels from existing vasculature. The process involves migration, growth, and differentiation of endothelial cells. The process occurs throughout life in both in a healthy and diseased state. Understanding the mechanisms underlying angiogenesis may have therapeutic value for heart disease and related cardiac disorders.
