The Srinivasan Lab at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) is recruiting motivated researchers to conduct NIH supported research to study lymphatic vascular development and disease. Lymphatic vasculature returns interstitial fluid, immune cells and digested lipids to blood and is crucial to support the function of the circulatory, immune and digestive systems. A dysfunctional lymphatic vasculature causes interstitial fluid to accumulate in tissues, leading to chronic swelling (lymphedema). Lymphatic defects are also implicated in systemic inflammation, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. Yet, therapeutic approaches are not available to treat lymphatic diseases. Towards this goal the Srinivasan lab uses state of the art biochemical, cell biological and transgenic technologies to dissect the roles of transcription factors and signaling molecules that regulate lymphatic vascular development and disease.
