Jen’s review paper “Mechanical regulation of signal transduction in angiogenesis” is accepted and published at Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology. We review how variation in the mechanical microenvironment can modulate the angiogenesis process. Jen combed through the literatures and presented an integrated view on how mechanical perturbations, such as stretching and fluid shearing, alter angiogenesis-related signal transduction and gene expression. Congratulations to this comprehensive work, Jen! Shahad contributed to the signal transduction session and the illustration. Good job Shahad!
