LABORATORY OF ANGIOGENESIS
AND CANCER METABOLISM
The Santoro Lab strives to understand blood vessels biology and cancer progression. The international team combines genetic, molecular, and metabolic approaches coupled with advanced imaging techniques to address specific biological questions and develop new therapeutic strategies.

BLOOD VESSELS AND
A network of blood vessels connecting the heart with all other organs and tissues in the body. Arteries and arterioles bring oxygen-rich blood and nutrients from the heart to the organs and tissues, while venules and veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart
