  • Monica GarciaMonica Garcia My research focuses on characterizing endothelial cell dynamics during vascular remodeling in the mouse embryonic yolk sac. I am currently using confocal microscopy and embryo culture to visualize and quantify the migration and proliferation of endothelial cells as vessels form and remodel in the yolk sac. The goal of my research is to determine the role that Akt signaling plays in vessel remodeling in the yolk sack.
