Dr. Feilim MacGabhann    /    /    Pubmed Listings

Feilim hails from the village of Blackrock on the east coast of Ireland. After attending University College Dublin, he took a two-year break from academia to be a management consultant. While studying for his PhD, he helped to introduce Gaelic Games to Baltimore. It remains to be seen whethe these sports will catch on in Charlottesville. If he's not in the lab, he is probably out looking for a soccer game.

Research Interests
I study the involvement of members of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family and their receptors in the process of angiogenesis. Having developed molecularly-detailed computational models of VEGF transport in tissue in vivo, I am now developing experimental tools to perturb VEGF transport in vivo and study the resulting impact on pro- and anti-angiogenic signaling.
